Visit the WHPA Honey Booth at the Wisconsin State Fair August 3-13, 2017! Taste the many varieties of honey and check out the live bees in the observation hive.
The WHPA Honey Booth is a place to learn about the importance of bees, honey, and Wisconsin’s beekeeping industry.
The WHPA’s main exposure to the public is at the WI State Fair each August. We are located inside the WI Products Pavilion at the WI State Fair Park in West Allis, WI. The Honey Booth offers fairgoers a wide variety of honey and honey products for sale from WI beekeepers. There is also a honey sampling station and a live observation hive where the public can see honey bees and a queen working in the hive. WHPA’s Honey Booth is staffed by beekeepers from around the state. It’s a great opportunity for the public to talk to real beekeepers while enjoying treats from the hive.
In addition to bottled honey, the booth also sells honey sticks, beeswax, pollen, lip balm, candles, honey lemonade & honey ice cream, honey taffy, and Sprecher Cream Soda & Root Beer. Our most popular product at the fair are the honey sticks. The Honey Booth sells over 35, 000 honey sticks during the fair! The WI Honey Queen also offers daily demonstrations during the fair, teaching the public about the benefits of bees and honey.
So, if your are a honey lover, stop at our booth and learn about bees and honey! If you are a WHPA member, working at the booth is great fun!
