We are getting excited for our upcoming Hawai'i Honey Festival this month.
Nani Mau Gardens, Makalika Street, Hilo Hawai'i, 10 am - 4 pm
Our vendor spaces are being finalized - lots of great applications - list will come out soon.
We have 2 great bands playing in the pavilion area.
The Master Gardeners will again conduct a couple garden tours through Nani Mau's beautiful property.
We will announce the winners of the Hawaiian Natural Honey Challenge.
Educational booths will include, among others, the Department of Agricuture Apiary Division, the Hawai'i Master Food Preservers program, the Master Gardeners Fruit Fly booth, Big Island Beekeepers Association booth.
There will be some educational presentations regarding beekeeping and any of the roaming beekeepers will be happy to stop, answer questions and share with you their knowledge. Look for those name tags hanging on them.
Don't forget this is your opportunity to taste many varieties of honey from the Islands of Hawai'i and vote for your favorite. The Beekeepers all hope it will be their very own special honey that will win the coveted People's Choice Award.
Come back often over the next couple weeks and see what we will continue to add to the mix.
Mahalo. See you at the Festival.
