      6th Annual Carolina Mountain Cheese Fest

      The Meadow at Highland Brewing is the festival’s main hub showcasing WNC Cheese Trail members alongside local food businesses representing cheese, charcuterie, crackers, breads, chocolate, and other products.

      Demos and workshops, included with festival admission, are scheduled throughout the day. Skilled artisans and educators will present on a variety of topics from creating the perfect cheese board to soapmaking and more.

      Returning this year is the popular Chef Competition where local chefs battle to interpret this year’s theme of
      “Brunch Bites” and take home the Food Critics and People’s Choice awards.

      For a small additional cost, guests can also enjoy pairings featuring cheese from WNC Cheese Trail members
      and beverages from Highland Brewing, Noble Cider, TreeRock Social Cider House, and 5 Walnut Wine Bar.

      Carolina Mountain Cheese Fest will also feature mellow acoustic entertainment, as well as a family tent where kids and their grown-ups can enjoy crafts and other hands-on activities.

      Families can also visit the Kid Corral to pet baby goats and (weather permitting) watch milking demonstrations.

      Guests are encouraged to purchase their tickets in advance.

      Please check the website to plan your day and purchase tickets.
