Connect With South Carolina Beekeepers....

SC Beekeeper Events open to the public.  We encourage anyone to attend our events  and local associations that are held monthly across South Carolina.  
  • Our State events are scheduled twice a year in the Spring and Summer.   We invite top honeybee researchers and scientist in the United States to speak at these conferences.  These and other Speakers bring the latest in beekeeping information and developments. Beekeeping Vendors from across the U.S. come to make beekeeping supplies available to all attendees.
  • Local associations have monthly meetings usually on first, second or third Thursday of each month.  Please check out our Local Associations Tab for locations.  At these meetings, you will find honey bee and beekeeping information that concern the local area.  Also contact your local association for Basic Bee School Classes.
  • The local associations participate at a local level for honeybee education, at Festivals and other public events.  Local Bee clubs begin their membership drives in the fall for the local and state membership.  If you are looking for events in your area, there is a local association near you, click here.
