Palisade offers fun for the whole family at the
10th Annual Honeybee Festival!

Friday evening, April 13, join us for the annual reception at the Blue Pig Gallery from 5 to 7:30 p.m. and enjoy gourmet appetizers as The Meadery
pours honey wine. Browse art featuring birds, bees and blooms, as well as batik and encaustic works using bees' wax in the process. Everyone is welcome!

Dan Bean will be on hand on Friday evening from the Palisade Insectary to answer all your questions about bees and he will have some beneficial insects on hand as well, for show and tell! The kids will love it and so will you!

On Saturday, from 11 - 4 pm, bring the kids to town for lots of exciting events, including a spelling bee, a bee costume contest, face painting and sidewalk chalk art they can create themselves. More than 70 wonderful vendors will line the streets offering all kinds of treasures. And you'll find delicious food offerings at local restaurants and food trucks.
