Cabot Arts announces the first annual,
Cabot Cheese and Culture Festival
Featuring Vermont Cheesemakers and Cultured Food Producers
Saturday, September 30th, 2023
On Saturday, September 30th, from 12pm-5pm, Cabot Arts will host the inaugural Cabot Cheese and Culture Festival in four venues in historic Cabot Village, Vermont.
In this inaugural year, 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, chefs, brewers, cider, wine, mead makers and turophiles, for a day of tasting, education and celebration.
Panel discussions on cheese and fermented food-making, and cooking demonstrations will be offered during the afternoon. Headwaters Restaurant and The Den at Harry’s Hardware will offer food and beverage pairings and special menus for the occasion.
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, wagon rides, and children’s activities to the celebratory atmosphere.
