This is the perfect venue for celebrating NATIONAL HONEYBEE DAY!

Come on out to taste backyard honey and delectable recipes made with honey.  Meet local vendors.  Drink honey cocktails.  Learn how to make mead and how to cook with honey.  There will be kids activities. As well as a belly dance performance.

Got honey? Join dozens of other local beekeepers and show off your prize honey by entering our Honey Competition.  Submit 2 - 8oz jars of honey (1 labeled & 1 unlabeled) by Friday August 16th.

Not a beekeeper? Enter a favorite recipe that uses honey. From sweet to savory, give us your best dish!  Entries must be received by 3pm on Sunday August 18th.  Bring 3 servings for the Judges and more for the crowd to try at the event.

This event has always been held as a Fundraiser for honeybees, and this year is no different. 
This year, all donations received from this event will go to Los Angeles County Beekeepers Association.
