Upcoming events

Arlington County Fair - Aug 18-20

Members come sell your honey, enter honey and wax competitions and help with outreach!

Attention all beekeepers, honey sellers and outreach aficionados!  Please help support our booth at the Arlington County Fair, Friday 18 Aug - Sunday 20 Aug. Hours of the fair are:

Friday - 4 pm - 10 pm

Saturday 10 am - 9 pm

Sunday 11 am - 7 pm

The link to the sign up sheet is below. Please sign up for one or more time slots if you can. This is an "All Hands on Deck" event and we need everyone to participate.

The event is inside, so we won't be hot or wet. Parking for the event, I am afraid, is very limited due to ongoing construction near the venue. Please park in designated areas for the event. There will be shuttles, but be prepared to walk a bit.  The address for the Arlington County Fair is Thomas Jefferson Community Center, 3501 Second Street South, Arlington VA.

More information about the fair, parking and directions can be found @

If you are interested in selling honey, PLEASE contact Martha Kiene at or 571-422-9003 to discuss price, rules, etc.
