Join the Auburn University College of Agriculture and the City of Auburn for Bee Auburn, a celebration of pollinators and their impact on our health, history, society, culture and economy.

This joint project features a weeklong list of activities leading into our Friday night main event - a street fair-styled block party in the Gay Street parking lot from 6 - 10 p.m. Featuring live music by 8 Track Rewind, pollinator-related vendors, a photography exhibition, farmers market, entertainment district event designation and the Pollinator Path. 

The Pollinator Path is an interactive walk through downtown and designed to highlight the impact that pollinators have on our local economy. Participants will pick up maps from the Bee Auburn tent in the Gay Street parking lot (which will be located next to the stage) and visit stops on the path to answer questions listed on the map. These stops will be local businesses in the downtown area. Once finished, they will return their sheets to the Bee Auburn tent to be graded and maps with all-correct answers will be entered into a drawing for prizes.
