Join us in our annual celebration of Maine’s strong artisanal cheesemaking community.  Each fall the Maine Cheese Guild sponsors The Maine Cheese Festival, its major fund raising event.

The Festival is a showcase for Maine cheesemakers and cultured dairy product producers, paired with an assortment of  select artisanal food producers.

• Meet Maine cheese makers

• Sample and purchase Maine cheeses

• Sit in on cheese related presentations and demos

• Learn about the Maine Cheese Guild

• Groove to live music and spend a day in fellowship with cheese lovers visiting from all over New England.

Your attendance at the Festival helps support the work of the of the Maine Cheese Guild’s mission—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.
