There are many honey festivals on The French Riviera. This particular festival was in the town Mouans-Sartoux. Honey Festivals are fun, educational and a tasting event that takes place every year on the last Sunday of April.
This event is organized by The Mairie (Town Hall) in partnership with Apiculteurs in the Provence Alpes-Maritimes area.
This year there were more than 30 professional apiculture farms and 5 other farmers (olive oil, cheese, wines)
There was a live demonstration of opening a bee hive
