Wewahitchka, referred to as "Wewa" by locals, is home of the Tupelo Honey Festival. Held annually on the 3rd Saturday of May at Lake Alice Park, the festival features the world famous Tupelo Honey. Tupelo honey is produced from the tupelo gum tree which grows along the Apalachicola River. This river valley, located in Wewa, is the only place in the world where certified Tupelo Honey is produced commercially by skilled beekeepers. The flavor is delicious, delicate, & distinctive.
