Cabot Cheese and Culture Festival

"Come for the Cheese, Stay for the Culture!"

Featuring Vermont Cheesemakers and Producers of Cultured Foods and Beverages

Saturday, September 28th, 2024 - 12-5pm

On Saturday, September 28th, from 12pm-5pm, Cabot Arts will host the 2nd annual Cabot Cheese and Culture Festival on the Village Common in historic Cabot, Vermont. The festival will be offered free of charge to all participants!
The Cheese and Culture Festival brings together Vermont cheesemakers, producers of cultured and fermented foods, bakers, brewers, cider, wine, mead makers and charcuterie, for a day of tasting, education and celebration. The event will present a robust schedule of demonstrations, workshops and speakers. Cheese and beverage pairings will be offered. The day will culminate with live music from a favorite local band.
The Cheese and Culture Festival will occur alongside Cabot’s annual Fall Foliage Festival which will add pop-up crafts markets, food trucks, farm and leaf-peeping tours, pumpkin carvings, and children’s activities to the celebratory atmosphere.
