Bee Fest 2018 Call for Exhibitors, Volunteers, Sponsors

By Staff

If you have any ideas, or a desire to lend a helping hand, please fill in this form HERE.

As we approach CATALYST’s first time presenting Bee Festival 2018, on June 16 at the Wasatch Community Gardens Green Team Farm (622 W 100 S), we want to know what you want to see, and what you want to bring to the festival to make it the best Bee Fest yet!

For the last seven years, Slow Food Utah has been the main organization behind the Honeybee Festival, held previously at the Sorenson Unity Center. This year CATALYST will be collaborating, and have re-branded the festival to include all pollinators (bats, birds, all types of bees, hummingbirds, insects, etc.)


There will be a Volunteer Meeting on Wednesday, April 11 at 5pm at the CATALYST office, 140 S. McClelland St. Bring your enthusiasm and your ideas.

See the Facebook event page for the volunteer meeting here.

Sign up to be a volunteer here.
