OH, HONEY!

One-Day Tupelo Honey Festival Showcases Locally Grown, Authentic Tupelo Honey Harvest

What

On Saturday, May 17, the 24th annual Tupelo Honey Festival kicks off under the great mossy oaks on the banks of beautiful Lake Alice in Wewahitchka, Florida. Wewahitchka, or “Wewa,” as the locals know it, is home to the legendary, pure Tupelo Honey.

Area farmers and apiaries will share their 2014 harvest with different types of genuine Tupelo Honey and other delicious recipes and treats. Live music, arts and crafts, and cheering on the Tupelo Honey Queens will round out the day’s events.

Home to both the tupelo gum tree and the hauntingly beautiful cypress, it is a perfect time to tour the Dead Lakes by kayak, boat or canoe. Local outfitters offer rentals and eco-tours.

When

Saturday, May 17, 2014, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Visitors can make it a long weekend getaway; lodging is still available in beautiful GCFL.
