When is the Honey Bee Festival

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 chefs demonstrating how to cook with honey, 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.

About the Festival


When is the Honey Bee Festival
hen The Queen City of the Highlands Swarm downtown LaFayette for a day of music, food and fun! When our community celebrates Life and “Bee”-comes one!

The City of LaFayette is the proud home of the Annual Honeybee Festival. In 2017, the Honeybee Festival was born and proved to “Bee” a huge success for the area!

Protecting the Queen

Honeybees are essential to life on our planet. If the honeybees were to ever disappear, so would life itself.

The City of LaFayette works to bring attention to the importance of preserving the honeybee population. We also see the importance of the honeybee population as a parallel to preserving the life of our own community. 

When is the Honey Bee Festival

In a Beehive, each bee has a responsibility to maintain the nest and protect the Queen.

Who is the Queen in our City? It’s the community. It’s our citizens, our family, friends and children. It’s our homes, businesses and industries. It’s our future. It’s us!

We celebrate the Honeybee Festival and see it as a way to “Bee” a positive change in our community.
