Maritime Honey Festival





Professor Walter "Steve" Sheppard of Washington State University Keynote speaker at Maritime Honey festival on Friday 22 September from 7:00 pm (Free Admission).

The Maritime Honey Festival, Sept. 22 and 23 at the Capital Exhibit Centre Fredericton, hosted by Central New Brunswick Beekeepers Association, offers the public an opportunity to learn more about the fascinating world of bees and increase awareness of the importance of bees in food production. The festival will feature local honey, beeswax, other hive products as well as honey-based craft beers. Additionally, there will be beekeeping information sessions and even a Kids Zone for the younger visitors!

The Maritime Honey Festival is the place to "bee" with opportunities to purchase not only honey and other bee-related products such as beeswax candles but also assorted body care products made from beeswax, honey wine, and beer! Hobby and commercial beekeepers alike will also have the opportunity to purchase beekeeping supplies and chat with beekeepers. Local brewers have created honey craft beers for a unique beer garden.
