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.”
