There’s more to celebrate.

Did you know: our Apis mellifera friends, the European honey bee, was first brought to the Americas right here in Virginia in 1622? After being brought to our East coast, it took 231 years before the honey bee reached our West coast. That’s right, the creation of the United States can be found in the footsteps of the honey bee. From Sea to Shining Sea!

This year marks the 400th year since honey bees were brought to America. We intend to celebrate by weaving this very special landmark into our festival this year.
