Each year, Kentucky State University holds a “bee school” to promote beekeeping in the Commonwealth.  And each year, the Capital City Beekeepers join them in helping promote that endeavor right here in Frankfort.  From the American Bee Federation Honey Princess visiting local area schools, and a host of activities and a plethora of restaurants and venues featuring bee and honey related items, you’ll find something for you to do all week!  Come join the BUZZ…
