mission

Since its inception as a partnership between the City of Woodland and the UC Pollinator Center, the California Honey Festival and the Honey and Pollination Center at UC Davis have worked together to develop an educational and fun format for learning about honey, bees, and pollination.

The California Honey Festival’s mission is to promote honey products and educate about bees and other pollinators’ crucial role in our ecosystem and economy.

What do we do?

We celebrate pollinators like the honey bee and spread awareness about how to protect bees from an even deeper population decline as result of threats such as climate change, habitat devastation, and disease

We encourage education about our dwindling native bee, hummingbird, and butterfly populations

We support local vendors and sponsors that advocate for pollinators through their products or actions within their community

We highlight Woodland and Yolo County’s place at the epicenter of bees and pollination

We educate the next generation of beekeepers and pollinator advocates

We host a family-friendly event featuring art, wine, beer, mead, food, music, kids’ arts and crafts, vendors, and honey galore!
