Carolina Mountain Cheese Fest

April 28, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us, rain or shine, for the fifth annual Carolina Mountain Cheese Fest to benefit the WNC Cheese Trail.  Meet the makers and the milkers, explore the craft of cheesemaking, sample product, and buy lots of local cheese!   Please note: pets are not permitted at the festival.

We invite you to the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina on April 28th, 2019, when we’ll be on the grounds of Highland Brewing Company to celebrate southern cheese and support the WNC Cheese Trail. We have two ticket levels: The Big Cheese level which includes early entry at 12 noon and parking, and Curd Nerd level with entry at 1 p.m.  The festival ends at 5 p.m.  

We’ll be updating our festival website regularly with information about the day’s activities.  We’ll have a wide variety of family-fun activities, vendors from across the region, demos, workshops, competitions, farm animals and more!

Tickets proceeds benefit the WNC Cheese Trail and are non-refundable. Please know that if you are unable to use your tickets and cannot find another to use them, we assure you that WNC cheese makers value your contribution as an important way to support small artisanal businesses and help keep the local dairy industry alive and well. 

Online general admission ticket sales end at noon on Saturday April 27.  Remaining tickets will be sold at the door for $20 (plus cc fee). Purchase entrance tickets here as well as tickets for tasting and judging events being held at the festival.  Ticket proceeds benefit the WNC Cheese Trail and are non-refundable.
