Since 1996, the Madison County Historical Society has been honoring the hop growing heritage of Madison County,  with Hop Fest,  a celebration of history, local food, hops and beer, on the grounds of the Cottage Lawn Museum in Oneida, NY.  Hop Fest proceeds support the educational programming of the Madison County Historical Society.

Madison County Hop Fest 2014 will be the weekend of Sept. 12 and 13.  

Celebrate the Madison County Hop Fest’s 25th Anniversary on September 17-18, 2021 with us! 

 We have many fun and exciting activities planned for the Fest.

The Madison County Hop Fest celebrates the past, present, and prosperous future of the hop industry in Madison County and throughout NYS. At the 25th Annual Madison County Hop Fest we will have programs about hop culture in NYS; home brewing demonstrations; exhibits on the history of hops; vendors selling hop-related merchandise; hop farmers; beer clubs; paired beer dinner; food trucks; a sampling of a variety of craft beer; and crowning of Hop King 2021!
