Mead Fest

Our Annual Mead Celebration in Pittsboro, NC!

We love celebrating Mead and think it’s a great excuse for a festival!

Join us the fourth Saturday in September 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, belly dancing, lots of arts and crafts vendors – including jewelry, critters, henna,  and many more great items! Come in costume if you'd like, enjoy local food for purchase, mead tastings, and more.

See all the details about this year’s event!

(At Mead Fest) 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.
