Welcome to the 2024 Cascade Girl Oregon Honey and Mead Festival benefitting our Bee Heroes America Veteran program, guide to mindful beekeeping, our school program and, of course the BEES who provide us so much joy!
The Oregon Honey Festival began in 2014 as an effort to support backyard and small scale beekeeping. Over the years we featured local beekeepers, mead makers and artisan crafters as well as internationally known speakers such as Amina Harris, 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, Korean culture and magic.
This year, we have engaged with Edenvale Winery in Medford, Oregon to produce the Festival.
We are seeking sponsors at various levels to make this a delightful experience for attendees. The Festival features several bands, pollinator art, activities for kids and adults, mead and honey tasting and a scientific presentation especially for those interested in bees, hosted in the beautiful atmosphere of Edenvale Winery located in the rolling hills of Medford just outside of Phoenix, Oregon. The site is only minutes from the Medford Airport and only a few miles away from Southern Oregon University and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
