We are SO excited about our First Annual Honey Bee Festival!!! A fun-filled weekend celebrating the busy bee and her hard work (that’s right, the worker bee is female!!) with the help from our friends, the Medina Country Beekeepers.
We kick off the event with Gourmet Honey Tasting all day in our Gourmet Cafe! Sample different varieties of honey and learn proper honey pairings.
Saturday, May 4th we are focusing on Everything Out of the Hive! Activities are planned throughout our expansive 20,000 square foot store, from 10:00AM-5:00PM . Join us for live honey bee demonstrations, delectable gourmet food tasting (all made with honey), honey tasting and honey pairings! Learn how to make jams and jellies using honey, creamed honey, and beeswax based lip balm and lotions. Queenright Colonies will be on sight with beekeeping supplies for purchase. Meet our Bee Culture Magazine Editor, Kim Flottum (the King Bee), as he signs his many books, including his latest: The Honey Connoisseur!
Come back Sunday, May 5th from 1:00PM-3:00PM for Root Family Day with Radio Disney!! The Radio Disney Road Crew will be on-site playing the latest hits from Radio Disney! In addition to music and dancing, learn all about our favorite bug: the honey bee! There will be coloring contests, candle making, and prizes (how do tickets to Cedar Point sound?!). It’ll be a fun-filled day the kiddos will remember!!
Did we mention these events are free? So pack up the car and celebrate the Honeybee with us, Root Candles!
