Were you part of history at the first-ever West Seattle Bee Festival last year? Whatever your answer, you are invited to be part of the SECOND-ever WS Bee Festival – now that the date is set for May 4th! Lauren Englund shares the news:

The West Seattle Bee Garden and High Point Neighborhood Association are hosting the Second Annual West Seattle Bee Festival, complete with a Picnic and Parade!

Date: Sunday May 4th, 2014
Time: 11 am-3 pm
Location: High Point Commons Park

Please share with your school and groups – everyone is invited to join!

Also, great news! We were awarded a Department of Neighborhoods grant this year to fund the event! Want to put something fun together for the parade (bike decoration party, costumes etc)? Or host a game at the festival? Let us know, because we can fund it! Please get back to us by April 4th if you are interested in hosting a craft/game.

More Details:
Parade Start Location: West Seattle Elementary parking lot (6760 34th Ave SW)
Parade Start Time: 11 am (location opens at 10 am to gather; we recommend coming early for face painting and to make a craft!)
Festival Location and Parade End: Commons Park (31st Ave SW and SW Graham St)

Want to bring a big group? Awesome, please let us know in advance so that we can be prepared: e-mail Lauren at

Small groups, want to just show up? That is fine, look for people with a ballon to help answer your questions.

Want to craft something in advance, or organize a parade prep party? Fantastic! Please email Lauren at or call 616-502-3182 to get in touch. We will happily help coordinate and can pay for the materials.

Festival will include:
Face Painting

Proudly working with Keep High Point Green, and the bees love it! Come see what’s new at the bee garden this year!

Because it’s fun and builds community – with the added benefit of supporting bees, pollinators and our environment (and why not come craft something to give Mom for Mother’s Day – wink!).

We hope to see you there!

-The West Seattle Bee Garden Team and High Point Neighborhood Association

    We were there last year and had a great time! Out of town this year, so we’ll miss it, but if you’re thinking of going – Do It!
