Free Honey Bee Festival to be in Palisade

You can comb the Grand Valley looking for things to do, but if you’re looking for something sweet, set your sights on the third annual Palisade International Honey Bee Festival on Friday and Saturday, April 15–16.

What’s the buzz?

The free festival starts with a reception from 5–8 p.m. Friday, at The Blue Pig Gallery, 119 W. Third St., in Palisade. The reception will feature the “Art is Our Bee’s Wax” exhibit, and guest speaker Richard Nunamaker, an entomologist, will present the program “The Plight of the Honey Bee.”

Appetizers and mead from the Meadery of the Rockies will be served.

The festival continues from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 16, in downtown Palisade. Bee-themed products ranging from honey to soft goods and household items will be available from vendors. There will be educational presentations, art demonstrations, a children’s spelling bee and entertainment.

While celebrating the community’s agricultural heritage, the festival also will draw attention to the documented population decline of the honeybee.
