The Vermont Cheese Council is currently navigating a transition back to our “normal” operations and events.  Because of the complex planning and considerations involved in it, we will not be holding the Vermont Cheesemakers Festival in 2022. We know this may come as a disappointment to many of you, and we share in that disappointment.  Our hope is to alternatively offer an opportunity to showcase Vermont cheesemakers/cheese in a smaller wholesale cheese buyer- and industry-only-focused event called the Vermont Cheese Summit on the weekend of August 13-14, 2022.

  • If you are a cheese industry professional (cheesemonger, distributor, retail owner/staff member, grocery buyer/cheese seller, chef/restaurateur) –  you can check out and register for the event here.
  • If you are a cheese lover craving ways to visit and interact with the Vermont cheese world – we encourage you to check out the Vermont Cheese Trail and The Hunt, our event and curated insider’s guide to exploring Vermont’s outdoor environment, arts, history, and cheeses – called by Lonely Planet one of its top free things to do in Vermont!
