Saving the planet, 
            one honey bee at a time.

Celebrate National Honey Month and Lithopolis Honeyfest Day in Ohio in a robust atmosphere of art, music, food, fun and people!

The Lithopolis Honeyfest is a non-profit event with a mission to raise awareness of the importance of the honey bee on crop pollination, to increase the consumption of honey, and to educate about the science and industry of beekeeping.  With the involvement of honey and beekeeping trade associations, we see this event as a component in preserving apiculture in Ohio.

Enjoy two fascinating days of unique attractions - honey bee beards, honey in a variety of flavors, colors and textures; and an array of products direct from the hive.  Watch honey being extracted from the comb and observe a state-mandated hive inspection. Learn interesting facts and information from daily educational presentations. Meet this year's American Honey Princess and Ohio beekeepers.  See a real queen bee and her colony up close behind a glassed-in observation hive.

Enter the Ohio Honey Show, Honey Bake-Off and ECOBA Photo Contest. Buzz over to the food courts for scrumptious honey-made food, and sample mead at the wine tasting tent. Grab a honey brew at the Bloom-Carroll Kiwanis Honey Brown Beer Garden and enjoy a treat from the Honey Bake-Off sale.  Listen to fantastic live music, shop the best of arts & crafts, and watch the kids create take-home crafts at the Gilmore Group HER Realtors Busy Beehive.

Thank you for your recognition
