Honey Festival – Châtillon
27-29 October 2017, on stage the scents of Aosta Valley’s honey.
Every last weekend of October (this year on 27-29 October 2017), thanks to the Châtillon Honey Festival, Châtillon turns into Aosta Valley’s honey capital.
Created for promoting the huge variety of Aosta Valley honey and its quality, the Honey Festival is the opportunity to meet many local producers displaying their honey and illustrating its history and scents.
Every year, a regional contest elects the best rhododendron honey, the best “millefiori” light honey, the best “millefiori” dark honey, the best chestnut honey, the best dandelion honey, and the best linden honey, with each of the winners getting a prize.
During the Honey Festival, the former Hotel Londres holds “History of Honey“, an exhibition displaying the different tools that beekeepers have used over the years for the production of honey.
Guided tastings are also organized.
