LACF is one of the largest county fairs in the country and the most-visited event in the Los Angeles region in September – an end-of-summer tradition for many.


This year we welcome Tabitha Mansker, 2016 American Honey Princess, who will be our guest at the Bee Booth from September 19-25. Tabitha is in the final stop of her National Honey Month Tour. She will be speaking to fairgoers about the importance of honeybees to the public's daily lives. 

Tabitha is from Nevada, TX where she helps manage her family's 16 hives (so she knows a lot about bees). She helps in the honey extracting for many commercial beekeepers. 

As the 2016 American Honey Princess, Tabitha serves as a national spokesperson on behalf of the American Beekeeping Federation, a trade organization representing beekeepers and honey producers throughout the United States. 

Honeybees are responsible for nearly 1/3 of our entire diet in regards to the pollination services they provide for a large majority of fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes. 

Come meet the American Honey Princess. She's looking forward to meeting you and 'talking about bees'.  

Gather round our fabulous HONEY BEE OBSERVATION HIVE. See if you can FIND THE QUEEN!
