Our annual bee-themed festival celebrates Grayson County’s ties to the honey industry. It has become an event Grayson County and surrounding areas look forward to each September. Click here for more info!

Clarkson Honeyfest is held the last Thursday, Friday and Saturday in September and hosts numerous activities such as a beauty pageant, decorating contest, children’s rides, parade, karaoke contest as well as food and craft booths. There are bluegrass and gospel music performances at night, ending with a southern country/rock band on Saturday night.

In 2006, enacted by the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, Clarkson Honeyfest was named and designated as Kentucky’s Official State Honey Festival.
