The Annual Honey Show, and Competition, typically held in the city of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, is a consumer focused Educational and Promotional event of the Manitoba Beekeepers' Association (MBA). It is organized and staffed by members of the Red River Apiarists' Association (RRAA). The event highlights several areas of interest for families, children, tourists, shoppers, and nature enthusiasts.
 
Event Highlights:
a) The focal point of the show is a display, highlighting award winning entries in the Honey Competition.
b) Another show area features a sample of Tools and Equipment used in our Beekeeping Industry.
c) A favourite spot for all ages is the traditional "Live Bee" display, where visitors can "Hear the Buzz".
d) Sweets from the Bees area features a variety of Artisinal or Floral Specific Honey, Bees Wax, and other hive related products for purchase.
e) Be sure to watch for times for either the Honey Cooking, Beeswax Hand/Face Cream preparation, Bees Wax Creation, or Honey Extracting Demonstrations.
 
Welcome to Visitors:
Visitors at the display are welcome to Talk with the Beekeepers, Learn about the Value of Honey and Pollination, Discuss the Health Benefits of Honey and other hive products, Take pictures of the Honey Bees, and Purchase your favourite floral specific honey from our local Artisans.
 
Invitation for Volunteers:
