Palisade International Honeybee Festival

Festival Celebrates 11th Year

PALISADA, Colo. - Saturday the eleventh international bee festival took place in palisade.

Downtown Fruita was as busy as a... well... you know!

A swarm of reasons to come out and enjoy the 11th palisade international honeybee festival.

From music, to local wine, to of course the star of the show.

Event attenders LOVED the sweet honey

This year, was a record breaker! The largest in the event's history...

"We've seen it grow from just a small event, to this year, we have 80 vendors."

And those vendors... well, they loved the business.

"Sales are very very good here, it's wonderful!"

But it wasn't all business! Facepainting, horse and carriage rides, games...

And of course a little schooling too.

"We're all about education, we want people to know what they can do individually to help the bees."

Learning while having a good time...

That's what you could call the bee's knees.
