The TNHF would not exist without the support and presence of our beloved beekeepers, apiaries, honey vendors, farmers, and producers.  

The festival wants to celebrate you! We will have Tennessee farmers and apiarists surrounded by live musical acts, local artisan vendors, local honey vendors, and even cooking demonstrations. Honey, produce, seeds, grains, plants, and soil will be for sale along with educational opportunities including beekeeping, canning, bread-making, food storage, gardening, and more!  

By incorporating farming into the footprint of the TNHF, we are building stronger connections bee-tween farmers, seeds, soil + bees. We hope that you will bee involved!
