The WHPA Honey Booth Needs YOU Aug. 5-15th at the WI State Fair!

The Wisconsin State Fair is the WHPA’s only fundraiser of the year. The WHPA Honey Booth is a State Fair anchor in the Wisconsin Products Pavilion. Beekeepers from across Wisconsin educate and promote honey and beekeeping to the public. There is an observation hive, honey samples, and sales of Wisconsin honey and products.

Volunteering – County beekeeping groups, clubs, families, or individuals are encouraged to volunteer for a day (or evening). Volunteers are entered in a drawing for a free 1-year membership to the WHPA and admission to the WI State Fair is provided. To volunteer please contact Tracy Malterer at 920-285-1817 or email tmalterer@hotmail.com. OR SIGN UP ONLINE to select a shift during the Fair!

Bids for Product – We are always looking for bidders to bring honey & honey products to the Fair. This is a great way to sell your honey, support the WHPA and gain business exposure. We encourage everyone to bid – the public loves Wisconsin honey! See the 2021 Wisconsin State Fair Bid Sheet The postmark deadline is June 25, 2021. Bid on one product or multiple products.
