WHPA Fall Convention

WHPA Fall Convention

WHPA’s annual Fall Convention is held on the first Thursday through Saturday in November. Each year, the convention is held in a different area of Wisconsin. Beekeepers from across the state come together for a weekend of networking, learning, and fun. Keynote speakers include locally and nationally recognized beekeepers and researchers presenting on current topics vital to the beekeeping and honey industry. An annual business meeting includes membership actions that strengthen the WHPA and support the honey and beekeeping industry. The weekend also includes a vendor trade show, Honey Queen Auction, an educational Kids & Bees Expo, and a Saturday evening banquet with member awards and a WI Honey Queen coronation. WHPA Fall Convention is open to all. Pre-registration and hotel information is announced during the summer months.
