Philadelphia Honey Festival
The Philadelphia Honey Festival gives the following descriptive information:
The mission of the Philadelphia Honey Festival is to raise awareness about the importance of honey bees to our environment, our food supply and our economy, and to promote urban beekeeping and gardening.
Entry to the festival venues, educational activities and demonstrations is free!
The Philadelphia Honey Festival began in 2010 to accompany the placement of an historic marker honoring Philadelphia-born Lorenzo L. Langstroth. Well-known to beekeepers, Langstroth invented the first movable frame hive design based on the principle of “bee space.” You can see the marker at 106 South Front Street in Philadelphia, his birthplace.
