BCN Honey Fest
By Melissa Leighty
BCN Honey Fest is back with its third edition, continuing its mission to spread awareness about the importance of bees. The focus of the event is to celebrate the bees as pollinators, which are responsible for one-third of all we eat.
Greenpeace España, local beekeepers and other experts will be there to discuss their vital role through a series of scientific and cultural Bee Talks, demonstrations and informative stands on topics such as urban beekeeping and innovative beehive designs, as well as children’s workshops on candle making and constructing insect hotels.
Visitors can enjoy art, music, honey-based foods and a marketplace selling honeys, propolis, pollens, beeswax cosmetics and soaps.
The event is organized by the non-profit association Apicultura Urbana with support from Ajuntament de Barcelona, Museu de Ciències Naturals and Mellis. (The event will take place around the Castell dels Tres Dragons in Parc de la Ciutadella.)
