A signature weekend at Wave Hill offers a buzz-worthy range of activities, from candle-making and honey-extraction demonstrations to a “Be a Bee” Family Art Project that has become a classic. Meet local beekeepers in The Shop, where you can enjoy a selection of local artisanal honey.

Be a Bee Workshop
Sat & Sun 10am-1pm
Outfit yourself with wings, antennae, a pollen cup and a kazoo to hum with. Buzz around in a hive of six-sided cells and forage in the flowers. Join in a bee parade and do a bee dance in a cardboard hive. Parade at 12:30PM, weather permitting.

Candle-Making Drop-in Workshop
Sat & Sun 11am-3pm
Try your hand at creating an assortment of beeswax candles to take home and enjoy. Materials fee: $15 per kit, which includes enough to make several candles.

Honey Extraction Demo
Sat & Sun 12pm-3pm
Watch the sticky process of extracting honey from the comb with Wave Hill's resident bee experts.

Admission is free until noon on Saturday.
