Honey Harvest | Bee Education

Saturday, July 27 and Sunday, July 28, 2019
noon - 4 p.m.

Buzz like a bee at Honey Harvest, Creative Discovery Museum's "sweetest" event! The 18th annual Honey Harvest Celebration will be held at Creative Discovery Museum on Saturday and Sunday, July 27 and 28 from noon to 4 p.m. Honey Harvest, a one-of-a-kind event in Chattanooga, is a museum-wide celebration of some of the world's hardest workers: honey bees. Museum guests will be awed by the life and work of the honey bee and learn how honey is made. This year we are including activities to increase awareness of honey bees as important pollinators, as well as native insect pollinators that are threatened by the same factors that affect honey bees. 

Guests will have the opportunity to make their own beeswax candles and honey soap to take home. Guests can also taste different kinds of honey, participate in honey extraction, and meet beekeepers from around the Chattanooga area.

A very special thank you to all of our volunteers who help make this event happen, including the Tennessee Valley Beekeepers Association, Northwest Georgia Beekeepers Association, Hamilton County Master Gardeners, University of Tennessee Agriculture Extension of Hamilton County.
