Located in the Baltimore neighborhood of Hampden, HONfest celebrates the working women who helped make this great city what it is. “Hon”, short for Honey, is a classic Bawlmer term of endearment. For generations, it has expressed the warmth and affection bestowed upon neighbors and visitors alike by our mothers and grandmothers. Since 1994, HonFest has grown from the tiny Baltimore's Best Hon pageant behind Café Hon, to a nationally recognized festival that covers four city blocks on Hampden's very own 36th Street.
