Returning to Rockaway Boardwalk for its fourth year, NYC Honey Fest is a celebration of the amazing pollinators who make the five boroughs their home. This free, daylong festival features art, food, music, film, kids’ arts and crafts, and a bee-product marketplace. Fun for the whole family, Honey Fest is a perfect way to close out the summer. Gather ye buds and enjoy the sunshine before autumn arrives by spending the day at the beach sampling the very best of NYC’s liquid gold.
More than two dozen vendors will set up tables and tents to sample, sell, and share their bee- and honey-related products and services. From honey-sweetened beverages to beeswax cosmetics, educational demos to monofloral honeys from the Tri-State Area, there’s something for everyone.
In the late-afternoon, all the little bees who created costumes with City Growers — and willing adults, too — will gather in front of the Rockaway Summer Photo Booth for the first-ever Be-A-Bee Parade. Wearing yellow-and-black, donning antennae and wings, and with bellies full of delicious, nutritious, and energy-fueling honey, we’ll swarm as a pack down to and then along the beach, returning to the Boardwalk for a special surprise!
Don’t forget to come and watch Disney’s Frozen after the honey fest!
