Honfest 2010 is coming up, and the Hons in Hampden are ready!

This year’s Honfest is June 12 & 13.

For those unfamiliar with the Baltimore term, “Hon”, here is an explanation from the Honfest website:

HonFest is a local tradition. The Bawlmer term of endearment, Hon, short for Honey, embodies the warmth and affection bestowed upon our neighbors and visitors alike by historic working-women of Baltimore. HonFest is an annual celebration in honor of these women.

Honfest 2010 is adding on a fun evening the night before with the Concert in the Park from 6-10 pm at Roosevelt Park.

Saturday and Sunday, attendees can delight in music, crafts, and fun, not to mention wild, outrageous hair, outfits, and accents! Sunday afternoon is when the full judging happens with the “Top 10 Hons” and talent show.

Honfest takes place over 4 blocks of 36th street on the Avenue in Hampden.

There are many shops, restaurants, and Hampden houses nearby!

Hampden is also home to the Miracle on 34th Street lights show around the holidays in December.

Come visit Hampden in Baltimore on June 12 & 13 — you’ve never experienced anything like it!
