Each spring, Greenfield Bee Fest celebrates Lorenzo Langstroth, the “Father of American Beekeeping,” with fun and learning for all ages as we highlight the vital role of the honeybee in sustaining our environment.


At Greenfield Bee Fest, the day’s games, crafts, lectures, music, costume parade, and other activities all incorporate lessons about the importance of bees and other pollinators. Without them, we would lose 35% of our food supply and up to 80% of all flowering plants!


Greenfield Bee Fest was launched in the spring of 2010 by the Second Congregational Church of Greenfield as part of its 200th birthday celebration. Inspired by the work of former pastor, Reverend Lorenzo L. Langstroth, known as the “Father of American Beekeeping,” Bee Fest offered fun and learning for all ages, while highlighting the essential role of the honeybee in sustaining our environment. Since then, the festival has grown in scope, involving presenters and participants from throughout the community, across Massachusetts, and even across the Atlantic.
