2017 Maine Cheese Festival
21+ Maine Creameries, 10+ Maine Artisanal Food Producers, Food Court with 5 Maine Food Vendors, gorgeous location...
The Maine Cheese Guild's annual tasting and shopping event showcasing 20+ artisanal Maine cheesemakers. The Festival is an opportunity to talk, taste and purchase Maine-made cheese, learn about cheesemaking, and celebrate the burgeoning artisanal cheesemaking movement in Maine. This year we will have more space, more cheese, more vendors offering Maine-made foods such as ice cream and baked goods, plus a food court with Maine food trucks! Savage Oakes Winery wine tastings will be available for those age 21 and over.
Savage Oakes is a true farm, home to a herd of belted Galloway beef critters along with its vineyard and wine making facility. They offer plenty of on-site parking and space for picnicking and just plain gazing at the scenery.
The Festival is rain or shine. Bring your cooler or insulated bags to transport your cheese purchases safely home.
Children under 12 are free. Please leave your dogs at home. Please print your tickets and present them the entrance.
The Maine Cheese Festival is a fundraiser organized by the Maine Cheese Guild which has a mission to "...support and encourage the Maine cheese-making community 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."
