Mead Day

Our Annual Mead Celebration in Pittsboro, NC!

The American Homebrewers Association has designated the first Saturday in August as Mead Day. We think it’s a great excuse for a mini-Renaissance Faire!

Join us the first Saturday in August each year for a special day celebrating the making, drinking and sharing of Mead!

Hosted inside and outside Starrlight Mead, this is one of our favorite celebrations and our biggest event of the year. Free, fun, and family-friendly - this is one you don't want to miss!

We have smoked Turkey Legs, food trucks, sword fighting knights, Renaissance music, home mead making demonstrations, lots of arts and crafts vendors – including jewelry, stained glass, iron candle holders,  and much more great items! Come in costume if you'd like, enjoy local food for purchase, mead tastings, and more.

New for 2017

Join us for a special tasting experience - taste the Great Meadiversary Tour tasting. We'll have meads from each of the meaderies that we visited on our 5 state, 8 meadery tour in April!

Mead Day at Starrlight Mead
(At Mead Day) I had mead for the first time in my life. I don’t like beer or wine, but I liked EVERY. SINGLE. ONE! Each flavor really shines through in each of the brews and it was overall a great experience.
