The Maine Cheese Guild supports and encourages the cheesemaking community all across Maine. This event will do that and educate cheesemakers and those that choose to go to the event.

Choose the early bird session which starts at 11 a.m., or the general admission session which begins at Noon. And the event runs until 6 p.m.

Maine Cheese Festival is all about Maine cheese. But there are lots of other exhibitors. Farmers, coffee roasters, bread makers, and artisans.

Cheesemakers, animals, drinks, music, and snacks. And all that cheese. Samples of cheese? Of course, all day long. What's not to love.
