Conwy Honey Fair

The Conwy Honey Fair in North Wales dates back more than 700 years to the reign of King Edward 1st, when local beekeepers were first given the right to sell honey within the walls of the North Wales town, every September 13th, from midnight to midnight, without charge.

The right to hold the fair is in the town's Royal Charter. Honey was very important even then, and in a list of expenses kept by Edward 1st at Rhuddlan Castle is an item: repairing a cart of the King's, carrying a pipe of honey from Aberconwy, 1s4d.

Records from 1835 report that " large quantities of very excellent honey are sold annually in Conwy". Before 1830, four fairs were held annually in Conwy. By 1911, this had increased to 10, including butter, wool and horse fairs. Now only two remain: the Seed Fair on March 26th, and the Honey Fair on September 13th.
