Nubeena Bee Festival
October 7 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Nubeena Bee Festival is an event for the broader Tasmanian community to get together and celebrate bees and their impact on the environment, our economy and our community. The event will be opened on the Friday night with a “Gala Bee Ball” offering entertainment, dining with food that highlights the flavours of honey, and a social gathering to bring members of the community together to celebrate our region. The festival on the Saturday will have a mix of food providers, each having some products that encompass honey, garden stalls with plants that encourage bees to your garden, apiarists and beekeepers with information and supplies of all things about keeping bees, artists and crafters, with a selection of products that incorporate bees and/or honey in their wares. We will have presentations from gardeners educating the community on the types of plants to grow to bring bees to your gardens, apiarists providing insight into the dangers/risks to bees and how to set up your own beehives. There will be entertainers to keep the family entertained whilst enjoying the family focused country village atmosphere.
