The Buzz Around the Annual Tupelo Honey Festival 

May is an absolutely delicious month along the Florida Gulf Coast! Floridians from all over—and now you and yours—flock to the country’s finest (and most well-kept) honey festival during this month. We want every guest to feel at home, wrapped in a cloud of relaxation, during their time on our pristine coastline. It only makes sense to let you know all about the incredible Annual Tupelo Honey Festival (our little secret that we readily encourage you to share). 

On Saturday, May 21, come together under the majestic mossy oaks of Lake Alice in Wewahitchka, Florida. This small community is located a little over 35 miles from Cape San Blas, making for a short road trip from your Pristine Properties vacation home. Folks gather to celebrate, taste, and purchase the locally-grown, rare delicacy that is Tupelo Honey

You and yours can attend this free annual festival and mingle with farmers from the area at their booths. These honey booths will dot the banks of Lake Alice, offering up tasty bee-made keepsakes in all shapes and sizes. There will also be a variety of other vendors, from food stalls to arts and crafts stations. Prepare for a day full of family-friendly fun—and delicious honey!
