Buy a Bee – Help us keep the buzz going!
Partner with the Greenfield Bee Fest Committee to grow our annual festival
Launched by Second Congregational Church in 2010 as a celebration of Rev. Lorenzo Langstroth’s 19th century invention of the modern beehive, Greenfield Bee Fest soon became an annual community-wide day of fun and learning – attracting professional beekeepers, bee enthusiasts, and families looking for kid-friendly activities. Though Bee Fest took a pause in 2020 because of the pandemic, it came buzzing back in 2021 with the launch of six new downtown Bee sculptures and select virtual events.
In 2022, Greenfield Bee Fest will start on May 7th with a freshening-up of the Bee Crosswalk on Court Square; continue with the opening of an art installation on World Bee Day, May 20th; and launch into full festival fun on May 21st.
