The 2019 Tennessee Honey Festival offers FREE admission and will have honey vendors and food trucks, live music, unique arts and crafts for the kids, classes to an interactive beekeeping Mobile Bee Classroom, a VIBee Experience (a separate exclusive paid ticketed exhibit at the Tennessee Honey Festival), and other extraordinary exhibits.
Savor tastings of local & regional honey, available for purchase from a variety of renowned honey vendors. Enjoy specialty foods, craft sodas, unique beverages, and much more. Entertainment includes live stage music acts, specialty crafts, face painting, and other art activities at the Tennessee Honey Festival Art Tent.
The Tennessee Honey Festival spotlights state apiary leaders, honey industry leaders, beekeeping enthusiasts, a local honey contest, as well as live entertainment and interactive art stations. The thread that ties the different industries, artists and organizations together is their desire and passion to educate and promote local and general honeybee awareness. At the festival visit local honey vendors from all around Tennessee with local bee pollen, local bee honey and comb.
The festival was created by U.S. Pest President, Erica Brister, because she believed the highest standards didn’t exist in the pest control industry, so she created them. In September 2018, the first inaugural Tennessee Honey Festival was a wildly successful event, with over 10,000 attendees and 100+ event vendors, dedicated to bringing awareness to the honeybee. The Tennessee Honey Festival has garnered attention all across America with its unique flare of bringing together the honey lovers and beekeepers to bring the honey bee crisis to the forefront of the community minds. U.S. Pest is working across industry lines to bring cooperation and agreement in working together ‘to protect what matters most’.
“We protect what matters most, and as confident leaders in the pest control industry, we are raising the bar and setting the standards high by taking initiatives to save our honey bees,” said Brister.
The Tennessee Honey Festival is held annually in September at Memorial Park in Hendersonville. 2019’s Tennessee Honey Festival is Saturday, September 7, from 10am-5pm. Admission into the event is FREE.
