Vermont Cheesemakers’ Festival Details
The Vermont Cheesemakers festival brings together cheese, wine, beer, cider, spirits, and specialty food producers for a day of tastings, demonstrations and educational workshops.
Vermont is the leading artisanal cheese state with the highest number of cheesemakers per capita. This event is an experience all its own where attendees can network with food and beverage producers who share a passion for the craft. Event participants will taste a variety of fresh, local foods and wines, as well as to learn all about the process used in making these fan favorite products. Spend a beautiful summer day along the shores of Lake Champlain sampling, buying and learning! Come and celebrate the Vermont summer season.
Participating food and beverage producers will compete in the “Best of the Fest” Awards, where leading producers are crowned for their perfectly crafted artisan products. This year, MapleBrook Farm defends their Best of Cheese title, Laughing Moon Chocolates comes prepared to hold tight to their Artisanal Food title, and Idletime Brewing Company competes to maintain their hard-earned craft brew crown.
