2023 Purdue Field Day will be on June 17 and will again be held at the Beck Agricultural Center located at 4550 US-52, West Lafayette, IN 47906. The advantage is that we’ll have an indoor area for eating and if (as in 2021) the weather turns bad or it gets really hot, we have air-conditioning. Hives are available from the Purdue Research Lab for hive sessions as this is a hands-on event. We will be in the hives so everyone will be required to wear at a minimum hat and veil. For directions, see our website:

Pre-registration will close at midnight, Monday, June 12. Lunch will be from Harvest Bread Co. for those that pre-register so be sure to select your choice of sandwich. We will allow walk-ins; however, you’ll need to provide your own lunch.

We have a sponsor this year: “Are you a veteran, first responder, family member of, or person with a disability? If so, a stipend is available to cover your expenses to this event. Please contact for more details.”
