Join us in the Avon Spirit Shipyard, set along the historic Newport Landing waterfront, to meet and mingle with local beekeepers, artisans, wineries and brewers. Learn about best practices for supporting healthy hives and pick out the queen bee in a demonstration hive. The museum is hosting a BBQ fundraiser and the cafe will be open for take-out serving its famous haddock chowder, lumberjack baked beans (made with honey and strong coffee) and blueberry shortcake (made with honey, fresh ginger and topped with real whipped cream!). Bring your appetite and join us in celebrating our favourite pollinators!
