HoneyFest San Diego is the region's first event celebrating the crucial role that bees play in sustainable food systems.

The festival promotes awareness of the complex and vital relationship between bees and humans by exploring the benefits of bee products, the art of beekeeping, and the issues around environmental risks to bee populations.

The weekend event offers workshops, fine food, product-sampling, art and performance. Participation in Honefest SD supports the efforts of small-scale beekeepers in San Diego and Kenya.
