Maine Cheese Festival 2017

October 15th, 2017 | Posted by GuildGuy in - (0 Comments)

1+ Maine Cheesemakers, 10+ Maine Artisanal Food Producers, Food Court with 5 Maine Food Vendors, Savage Oakes tasting room, gorgeous location…

The Maine Cheese Guild’s annual tasting and shopping event showcasing artisanal Maine cheese. The Festival is an opportunity to talk about, taste and purchase Maine-made cheese and other Maine made foodstuff, learn about cheesemaking, and celebrate the burgeoning artisanal cheese and locavore food movement in Maine.

This year we’ve added more space, more Maine made cheese. We have ten plus artisanal food vendors an a food court of Maine food trucks in addition to Savage Oakes catering and their tasting room for those age 21 and over. See the vendor list at the end of this post for a detailed list.

Savage Oakes is a true farm, home to a herd of belted Galloway beef critters along with its vineyard and wine making and tasting 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.”

The Maine Cheese Guild is a group of cheese makers, cheese retailers, cheese equipment suppliers, and cheese lovers of all kinds in Maine. We began in 2003 and currently have about 80 members.

The Guild’s mission is to support and encourage the Maine cheesemaking community. We will 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.

We meet 10 times a year at various locations, mostly at our members facilities. Maine is a big state, and this allows our meeting to be geographically accessible at least a few times of the year for all our members.

In addition we organize events and workshops and festivals for our members as well as for the cheese lovers of our state.
