An exciting month-long program of family-friendly events

The annual Honey Festival returns this May with an exciting month-long program of family-friendly events around Perth!

May is Honey Month. Are you curious about bees or how honey is produced? Did you ever consider keeping bees yourself? Find answers to all your bee-related questions during Honey Month - May 2022.

Throughout May, various venues (Cafe Mojo, Hemingway, Chidlow Tavern) will be profiling honey in drinks, foods, tastings at farmers' markets, candle making workshops and biosecurity sessions to just mention a few. Plus The Honey Festival is back on Sunday 29 May at Gidgegannup Showgrounds!

Beekeepers are encouraged to enter the Honey & Beeswax Competitions. Plus there is also a Mead and Ambrosia Competition (entries close on 20 May). The Honey Cake Competition (to a specific recipe) returns this year and includes a new Open Class. Let your imagination run wild - as long as you use 80% WA honey as your sweetener! All forms are available from the website here.

Chef Dale will judge the cakes and food entries and will then demonstrate how to incorporate honey into your recipes!

One of the driving forces behind Honey Month is to inspire and educate the younger generation.

Bees are also under threat by disease, climate change and though dwindling forest resources. It is important for the community to appreciate and understand the importance of bees in Australia as our master pollinators and how important they are to our food diversity here in Australia.

Immerse yourself in all things honey this May! Below are some of the event highlights!
