New York’s sweetest festival returns to Rockaway Beach


The Rockaway Beach Boardwalk may have taken a beating from Hurricane Sandy, but that’s not going to stop the hives of bee product enthusiasts from returning to the recently rebuilt site for the annual New York City Honey Festival.

On Saturday, September 7, the Brooklyn Grange Rooftop Farm and Rockaway Beach Club are back at the 86th Street Boardwalk for their third year of honey-centric festivities.

What does that look like? You can sample a variety of multiflora honeys from local farms like the Brooklyn Grange, test beeswax candles and cosmetics, and sip on small-batch, honey-infused beers from KelSo and the Rockaway Brewing Co. A movie screening on the beach, observational hives, and intro classes will round out the day.

Plus, there will be a raffle to raise money for Graybeards, a nonprofit that raises money for Rockaway relief. That’s what we call a sweet cause. —Carla Vass
