This sounds like a "gouda" time...okay, that joke was "cheesy". We will stop now

On Sunday, September 12th, from 11am-6pm, The Maine Cheese Guild presents The Maine Cheese Festival, at Manson Park in Pittsfield, along the Sebasticook River.

If you are like us, you have an obsession with delicious cheese, so take a road trip on a late summer Sunday, and spend the day celebrating Maine Cheese and Cheesemakers, with the Annual Maine Cheese Festival. This is an event for the whole family, and features the first annual Maine Cheese Awards. Sample a huge variety of Maine cheeses that are crafted from cow, goat, water buffalo, and sheep milk. But that’s not all, there will also be a beer and wine garden with delicious Maine made libations, a bunch of food trucks, and a stage to enjoy some live music.

That sounds like plenty right? Well, there will also be live animals for the kids to enjoy, educational food demos, craft vendors and more!

There will be 16 cheese vendors, 6 beer & wine vendors, 13 artisan food & craft vendors, and 7 food trucks that will feature tasty treats like steak & cheese, crepes made with Maine cheese, ice cream and beverages, wings, tenders, chili, hot dogs, gyros, salads, waffles featuring a cheese theme (yum) and a raw oyster bar.

The Maine Cheese Festival is a rain or shine event, and there are limited tickets available, and they will not be sold on the day of, so grab them now at
