Our first annual Honeybee Folk Festival will feature local bands from the Northland and a few surprises from outside our region. In addition to truly great music (FRIDAY 8/3: Northern Shoveler, Gossamer Strings, Lowland Lakers, Black River Revue and SATURDAY 8/4: Moonlight Community, Northern Shoveler, Woodblind, Feeding Leroy, and LASKA) we are going to have quite a bit of information and fun pollinator friendly activity goin on.

We plan to start celebrating the honeybee on Friday 3:00 pm with an pronouncement from the Mayor of Carlton and the Carlton City CouncilĀ  stating the City of Carlton has become a Pollinator Friendly Town as outlined by the Pollinate Minnesota organization.
