“Bartram’s Garden is proud to host the Philadelphia Honey Festival and spread awareness about how much we rely on honey bees. Honey Fest is a fun family event, and it also shares the importance of stewarding our natural environment so we can ensure that our native bee population thrives. We are proud to partner with the Philadelphia Beekeepers Guild on an event that is so important and unique in our city.” Bartram’s Garden, Executive Director, Maitreyi Roy.
Bartram’s Garden (54th Street & Lindbergh Blvd., Philadelphia 19143) hosts the final day of the festival on Sunday, September 9th from 10 am – 4 pm. Special features include:
- A children’s carnival
- Children’s Bee Parade
- Native Plant Sale

On site, we’ll be having our annual fall plant sale which offers a broad seasonal selection of perennial plants, trees, shrubs, and vines as well as horticultural staff experts to help answer questions. If you are looking for fall color or fall flowers Bartram’s garden features a mostly native selection of plants as part of the garden’s honey fest. Fall is also one of the best times to plant!
