ABOUT THE TENNESSEE HONEY FESTIVAL
Experience the sweet taste of beekeeping at the Tennessee Honey Festival. Bring your family and friends for an educational, fun-filled festival to learn about the importance of bees and other pollinators in Middle Tennessee! Come to the 2019 Tennessee Honey Festival on Saturday, September 7th, at the Hendersonville Memorial Park.
The inaugural Tennessee Honey Festival in 2018, founded by U.S. Pest Protection, garnered attention all across America with it’s unique flare of bringing together honey lovers and beekeepers. The festival was a huge success with 10,000+ attendees the first year and over 100 vendors. Attendees of the festival learned about bee-keeping, the shortage of honey-bees and actions to help, beehive painting, honey samples, honey popsicles, honey-themed body products and more. While it was a free event, donations were accepted to help raise awareness of ensuring bee health.
This public awareness campaign will continue to bring the honey bee crisis to the forefront of community minds with more honey vendors, food trucks, live music, unique arts & crafts, and a VIBee Experience* – interactive beekeeping classes and extraordinary exhibits!
