2018 Maine Cheese Festival September 9, 2018 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM (EST)


Our annual festival celebrating and showcasing Maine Cheese! Sunday, September 9, 2018 at Wolfe's Neck Farm in Freeport, Maine. We hope you'll join us to support, discover and enjoy Maine Cheese!

The festival is a key annual fundraiser for the Maine Cheese Guild, a non-profit trade organization which works to educate and support Maine cheesemakers. 

The 3rd annual Maine Cheese Festival brings together over 30 Maine cheesemakers to sample and sell their cheeses! Plus we'll have local craft beer from Maine Beer Company, Maine wine from Savage Oakes Winery, food trucks and Maine artisan food vendors. The Festival is an opportunity to learn about, taste, and purchase Maine-made cheese. Workshops and cooking demos focused on cheesemaking, pairing, fermenting foods and wine/beer making will be hosted throughout the day in the visitor’s center. Local, live music TBA. 

Ticket sales will be limited to 2,000 this year and we anticipate selling out. Wolfe's Neck Farm will offer camping packages for the weekend at their oceanfront campground adjacent to the festival site. Tickets will go on sale July 1. Tickets: $15 online and $18 at the gate if any are remaining by the event date.
