Meet twenty or so of Maine’s finest cheesemakers in a gorgeous setting centrally located Midcoast Maine. The Festival is an opportunity to talk, taste, learn about  and purchase Maine-made cheese, learn about cheesemaking, and celebrate the robust artisanal cheesemaking movement in Maine.

  • Savage Oakes Winery tasting and sales will  be available
  • Local music from the southern mid-coast based band, Rough Sawn, made up of farmers, carpenters and cheese lovers playing classic country, Western swing, bluegrass and originals from 1 to 3pm
  • Chef demos and Q & A sessions with cheesemakers and cheese-centric raffles throughout the day.
  • Baked goods from Hootenanny artisanal bakery

Rain or Shine, so pack your raincoat and umbrella just in case and bring your cooler to transport your cheese purchases safely home. Children under 12 are free. Please leave your dogs at home.

The Festival is a fund-raiser with proceeds earmarked towards fostering and growing Maine made cheese, and will highlight the fine craftsmanship and diversity of flavors that Maine cheesemakers have to offer.

The Maine Cheese Guild’s Mission is to support and encourage the Maine cheesemaking community. We do this through development of a collective voice to promote Maine cheese and cheesemakers, educate cheese makers and consumers, coordinate resources and share the joy and art of regional cheeses. The Maine Cheese Guild’s mission is made possible through the contributions of our supporting partners program, including Five Islands Farm located in Georgetown Maine.

Online ticketing until the day of the Festival is available via Brown Paper Tickets, a fair-trade ticketing company. Cash ticket sales at the gate.

**This is a no-smoking, no dogs please event.
