About this Event

Texas Keeper Cider and Two Hives Honey are teaming up once again for the 4th Annual Honey Fest! Come on out to the Cidery to celebrate all things bees and honey! Live music will accompany a day filled with delicious honey-inspired dishes and drinks. Peruse bee-centric body care, candles, and soaps, decorate yourself with bee-themed henna body art, and get a custom t-shirt at our live screen-printing station!

Local honey purveyor, Two Hives Honey, will be offering honey for purchase, and don't miss a spot in a live honey harvest! This is also the day Texas Keeper releases Honey Thief, their seasonal cyser (cider fermented with honey) - made for the first time this year with estate-produced honey!

We are also offering a limited number of tickets for a series of workshops presented by this year's participants. From a Gardening for Pollinators to Encasing Bees in Resin for jewelry or art projects, seats for these are very limited so make sure to sign up early! See full schedule below.
