Welcome Reception

Everyone is ABUZZ at our annual gala. Start the convention right by enjoying an evening of catching up with familiar faces and network with new ones!

 

Live Rodeo & BBQ!

Join us for live entertainment at Tejas Rodeo Company!

 Full Professional Rodeo

A private professional rodeo, which includes a chuck wagon being pulled by matching set of horses surrounded by longhorn cattle, bull riding, team roping, barrel racing, and a calf scramble for the kids!

 

 
Chuck Wagon BBQ & Dessert  

A real chuck wagon demonstration is a unique show and a dessert you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else. Just like in the cowboy days, homemade cobbler is poured into cast iron Dutch ovens, lowered into and covered by hot campfire coals, and baked to perfection. It doesn’t get any fresher or more authentic than this!


 

 45th Annual Awards Banquet and Auction

 
The banquet is a highlight of the convention as the bidding wars start for the latest tools of the trade and unique gifts for your "honey.” You’ll also get a chance to find out "Who’s Who” in the Beekeeping Industry with awards going to this years’ Beekeeper of the Year and Friend of the Industry.

You won’t want to miss this night of socializing and friendly competition.
