Uvalde, TX sits at the Crossroads of America as Highway 83 and 90 intersect in our center, connecting the four corners of our massive country all on one small town. Nicknamed the Honey Capital of the World, Uvalde has a long history of honey production and is known for Huajillo honey. This beautiful and mild flavored honey is created from the flowering Huajillo plant and wild flowering brush of South Texas. Bee farmers from all over bring their hives to create the most tasty honey known, right here in Uvalde County.
The 2019 Uvalde Honey Festival will be the first of its kind that celebrates our amazing heritage, promotes bee conservation, and brings foot traffic to downtown Uvalde. As a farming and ranching community, pollinator education is vital to our economic and agricultural development, and we are excited to have an event that showcases this education.
From a hometown bake-off to a magical street dance under the stars, The Uvalde Honey festival will be full of great food, music, dance, crafts, bee and honey conservation education, fellowship, and celebration of our town heritage as the Honey Capital of the World!
