Kentucky State Fair
Every year in the summer, KSBA and CKHP sponsor a honey booth at the Kentucky State Fair. Below is information for KSBA and CKHP members interested in selling honey at the Kentucky State fair, as well as information for local bee clubs interested in volunteering to work at the honey booth.
The Kentucky Fair is an opportunity for beekeepers and local bee clubs across the Commonwealth to highlight the joys and rewards of beekeeping. The KSBA and CKHP Honey Booth at the Kentucky State Fair shines a light on the importance of honey bees and other pollinators, highlights the integrity of Kentucky beekeepers and enables beekeepers state-wide to come together to develop relationships with other beekeepers. The underlying spirit of the Fair is good will, productive work and fun!
