What's the BIG BUZZ

The Big Buzz Festival is a FREE ENTRY family friendly, fun filled country fair in Matakana with stalls of all things bees, food trucks and live entertainment, free talks and workshops, spot prizes and competitions, free children's activities all day long and much more.

A stimulating day out experiencing the wonderful world of our pollinators, the honey bees, and all things associated with them, from honey to cosmetics, from health to gardening, from conservation to environmental awareness.

Come along, have fun, relax, but most importantly bring your "honey"!
