Dear friends: It is with a very heavy heart that we again postpone the Vermont Cheesemakers Festival for another year. With so much in flux – vaccines that are still making their ways into arms, uncertain travel restrictions, and variants still varying – we are making this decision to continue to be able to keep both our vendors and visitors safe and well. This was not an easy decision and we very much hope to be back on course as normal in 2022.
We have had many inquiries regarding The Hunt and if we will be running this event again this year … The Hunt – for those who didn’t participate last year – is a scavenger-hunt-style-adventure that helps people find fun things to do and explore the state… sort of “the cheesemakers’ guide to Vermont” if you will. We break the state into six regions and guide folks to visit cheesemakers; find great outdoor adventures; experience Vermont’s unique history; track down food and drink that pair with cheese; and explore the beautiful agricultural landscapes that frame our gorgeous state! Last year we had many folks who used our “clue packets” as guides to help them find things to do when visiting Vermont – even if they didn’t “do” The Hunt in full. What last year’s participants told us: “Loved it, loved it, loved it!” 100% of those who took our post-event survey said they would do it again; 100% said they’d recommend it to a friend! If you are a cheese lover and looking for a Vermont adventure – either as a local or as a visitor – check out The Hunt as a fun alternative to the festival!
