Why host the NC Honey Festival in Whiteville, NC?
Whiteville is one of only 10 cities in North Carolina to have “Bee City” status; recognized for environmental and agricultural practices that are not harmful to bees. Without the support of honeybees, the future of North Carolina’s multi-billion dollar agricultural industry would be in jeopardy. The work of the humble honey bee affects us all and is worthy of celebration! On Saturday September 9th, 2017, the North Carolina Honey Festival will take over Downtown Whiteville, spanning a 3-block stretch. We invite you to support us for a day of bee-themed fun!
Who & What Will Be There?
Beekeepers from across the state with honey on display, beekeeping suppliers, health & beauty products made with honey, sweet deserts, honey wine, savory honey sauces, beekeeping industry experts & more!
