Bee Barn Cleanup

Saturday, August 13, 8:30 AM – 11:00 AM at the Marshfield Fair Bee Barn

The Bee Barn on the Fairgrounds will be cleaned on Saturday, Aug 13th. We will meet at the barn at 8:30 AM and work until it is done. Many hands are needed as everything must be moved out of the barn and cleaned and then moved back into position for the Fair. Please bring rags, paper towels, cleaning solution etc. If we have many hands, we can get it all done between 10:30 AM and 11:00 AM.

The Bee Barn Cleanup is the kick off event to a series of events leading up to and including the Fair. A schedule of these events is available by clicking here.

Note that if you are volunteering for a shift at the Fair you should pick up your parking/admission pass from Bonnie or Kenny Pearl at this event and it is also an opportunity to sign up for honey and wax sales at the fair with Kenny Pearl and buy your jar tags from him.

When you enter the Fair grounds at the Gate A entrance (across from the Grace Ryder housing facility) you will see signs as to where to park. WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DRIVE INTO THE FAIR GROUNDS OR PARK INSIDE THE GATE!!! This is a hard and fast rule the Fair people have given us, so we need to cooperate since there will be many vehicles and people going in and out setting up.

Honey intake (the honey that you are selling) will be on Wednesday, Aug. 17 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the Bee Barn on the Fair Grounds.

If you are going to sell honey or wax at the Fair, you must also compete in the Marshfield Fair Honey Exhibit with either 2 one pound jars of honey, a wax item or a frame of capped honey. Competition items entry will be on Thursday, Aug. 18 from 2:00 PM – 7:00 PM at the Grandstand. The competition items will then have to be brought to the Bee Barn. The Bee Barn will be open long enough to accommodate delivery of the competition items.

If you do not already have a Marshfield Fair Exhibitor ID you will be issued one at the Grandstand. Do not place any ID numbers directly on any Marshfield Fair Honey Exhibit competition item container. A card will be issued for each competition item.

2022 Marshfield Fair

Friday, August 19, Noon – Sunday, August 28, 10 PM at the Bee Barn.

The Marshfield Fair is the club’s signature public outreach event. Club members can help educate the general public about honey bees, compete for prizes in a variety of categories, sell honey and other bee-related products and participate in demonstrations. A huge amount of planning, logistics and hard work make it happen every year because of the leadership of Bonnie and the hard work of all of the people that pitch in to help. Thank you all.

After the Fair is over, the cleanup of the barn will be on Monday, Aug. 29 from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM. Any honey not sold must be picked up at this time. Nothing can be taken from the barn until the Fair closes at 10:00 PM on Sunday the 28th.
