     Welcome to the 2022 Cascade Girl Oregon Honey and Mead Festival benefitting our Bee Heroes America Veteran program, school program and, of course the BEES!


     Thank you for considering sponsorship of the Oregon Honey ( Mead!) Festival 2022.  We have been on hold for a few years after losing an apiary to wildfire and due to public health mandates.

 

     The Oregon Honey Festival began in 2014 as an effort to support backyard and small scale beekeeping.  Over the years we featured internationally known speakers, Amina Harris, the Director of the UC Davis Honey and Pollination Center and Dr. Dewey Caron, Professor Emeritus at OSU and educators from Glory Bee.  We have been honored to host cultural presentations by Marla Bullbear, director of the Lakota Youth program and the youth themselves who represented their culture and approach to beekeeping.  We have also featured artists such as Meesha Goldberg whose artwork illustrates the intersection between bees, beekeepers, the feminine, Korean culture and magic.

     This year, we have engaged with the city of Medford to produce the festival at the beautiful Vogel plaza and the lobby and classroom at the Craterian Theater.  

     We are seeking sponsors at various levels and would like to raise the funds that will make this a delightful experience for attendees.  We have included sponsorship amounts that will allow all businesses to participate if they choose. We would like to have a few major major sponsors to help underwrite the cost of musicians and speakers.

     Typically, the tickets sold for this production have been at very low cost (5 to 10 dollars)so as to allow the public to participate with their families. 

     Also, if you are interested in being an exhibitor, we would certainly welcome that level of participation.  For the safety of yourself and others, we will ask everyone to comply with public health mandates that may exist at the time of the event.
