Join us this Saturday to celebrate the Garden's centennial! We're having a bee-inspired birthday party for all ages with honey tastings, lectures, presentations, tours, and live music throughout the Garden. Tease your beehive into shape for an old-school concert with a cappella kings The Persuasions and the legendary soul singer Maxine Brown, performing with Brooklyn honeys The Sweet Divines.

For more information about our centennial bee-day party and for a schedule of events, visit Bee-Day

Will you guys do this again?  We missed it by a month, but would have loved to attended.  My family just got started keeping bees and is in awe of the secret life of bees!!
