Ladies at HonFest in Baltimore, Maryland
10 Jun 2023 - 11 Jun 2023


Baltimore, Maryland

Grab your boas and tease that beehive! HONfest symbolizes all the charm and goodwill that lies within the hearts of those who live, work, and play in the city of Baltimore (or “Bawlmer” as it’s known locally). “Hon” the Bawlmer term of endearment short for “Honey”, embodies the warmth and affection bestowed upon our neighbours and visitors alike by the historic working women of Baltimore. HONfest is an annual celebration in honour of these women.

Since 1994, HONfest has grown from a tiny Baltimore’s Best Hon Pageant to a nationally recognized festival that covers four city blocks along West 36th Street in the Hampden neighborhood of Baltimore. The festival gathers 35,000+ attendees; dozens of food, craft, corporate and non-profit vendors; three stages of music; and Baltimore’s Best Hon Contest.
