Hi folks! This year we faced another big challenge in location for the festival – again needing a new spot for it for the year. Instead of hosting a single event, we decided to experiment with a new weeklong experience we’re calling Vermont Cheese Week:  A state-wide, weeklong celebration designed for the palates of foodies and to feed the fanaticisms of all you cheese lovers out there (We see you.).

Looking for a cheese feast? Start the week off at the Harpoon Brewery Kickoff event in Windsor.

Need something mellow and romantic? Pick up a basket of cheeses + other local goodies and enjoy a picnic on a farm in the Champlain Valley.

You can watch cheesemaking and tour international award-winning cheesemaking creameries around the state. Many cheese producers are also partnering together for dinners or classes around the state – including some incredible, dreamy experiences for the cheese-obsessed. You can even sign up for cheese camp, where you can meet cheesemakers from around the state firsthand, learn about what it’s like to make cheese and farm in Vermont, get to hear from one of the state’s most well-known cheese historians, eat some cheese (of course that is included!!), and tour one of the state’s most beautiful historic estates, as well as its farm and creamery! And that’s just a nibble of what’s on the calendar!

Our cheesemakers helped designed this – and we are thrilled to share these amazing experiences with you!
