Utah Beekeepers' Conventions

The Utah Beekeepers' Association hosts an annual convention for its members of all skill levels. This is a great place to learn the ins and outs of beekeeping from the pros. All association members are welcome and encouraged to attend. These meetings are generally held in the Salt Lake area during the winter months. Association membership is required to attend and is offered at no charge to members.

The next convention will be on Feb 22nd and 23rd, 2019 in Lehi, Utah (location details below). Registration will begin at 8:30 AM on each day. The program will run from 9 AM to 5 PM on Friday and 9 AM to about 2 PM on Saturday. The Association dinner will begin at 6:30 PM on Friday night. The prizes given away at the dinner are always a lot of fun. Reservations are required for the dinner.

Lunch will be provided on both days and is included in the price of membership/attendance. Gluten-free lunches will also be available.
