The mission of the Lithopolis Honeyfest is to educate visitors about the art and science of apiculture (beekeeping). To raise awareness of the importance of the honey bee on the pollination of crops, to increase the consumption of honey, and to educate about the beekeeping industry. With the involvement of honey and beekeeping trade associations, we see this event as a component in preserving apiculture, not just in Ohio, but nationwide and globally.
Enjoy a fascinating day of unique attractions - bee beards; honey tasting of all flavors, colors and textures; honey extracting and bee hive inspecting. Meet beekeepers, explore equipment and discover products direct from the hive. See a real queen bee and her colony up close under the glass of an observation hive.
Listen to great live music, browse quality arts & crafts, and spend family fun time at The Gilmore Group's Busy Beehive. Scrumptious honey-made food and be sure to sample mead (honey wine) at the mead & wine tasting. Grab a honey brew at the Bloom-Carroll Kiwanis beer garden. Before flying off, take home a memory with a sweet souvenir shirt, fit for a queen Taste of Honey cookbook and stingingly elegant hand-painted glassware.
