Buzz like a bee at a Creative Discovery Museum’s “sweetest” event! The 14th annual Honey Harvest Celebration will be held at Creative Discovery Museum.

Honey Harvest, the only local event of its kind in Chattanooga, is a Museum-wide celebration of some of the world’s hardest workers; Honey Bees. Museum guests will be amazed as they discover all about the work of honey bees and how honey is made.

During the Honey Harvest celebration, visitors will be able to make their own honey lip balm, beeswax candle and honey soap to take home. They will also be able to taste different kinds of honey, participate in honey extraction and meet beekeepers from the Tennessee Valley Beekeeper Association.

“Creative Discovery Museum has been educating children and their families about honey bees with its annual Honey Harvest event since 2000,” said Karen Dewhirst, Museum Experience Manager. “Since the opening of Buzz Alley exhibit, Honey Harvest provides a deeper connection to the hives kept by the Museum. All activities are included with paid Museum admission.
