Aaahhh, fall at last. I have so many wonderful summer memories to share with you all, so many new cheeses that graced our cheeseboards and earned our adoration. Enough to fill a book, you might say. {wink} But first, there are some pretty exciting cheese festivals coming up this fall that we wanted to let you know about, in case you’re already itching to book a cheesetastic weekend away. (Or lucky enough to have one of these in your own backyard.)

Massachusetts Cheese Guild Meet the Cheesemakers

Concord, Massachusetts

First up is a mixer of the fledgling Massachusetts Cheese Guild this Thursday, September 18. Join Guild members for an al fresco evening of cheese tasting at Verrill Farm in Concord, Mass. Get your ticket here, or learn more about the Guild. {We’ve featured a few Massachusetts cheeses here, but there are so many more we need to try!}

Washington Cheesemakers Festival 2014

Seattle, Washington

Next up, the Washington Artisan Cheesemakers Festival on Saturday, September 27, in Seattle, Washington. More than 20 cheesemakers from around the state will be participating, including Jill’s most recent crush, Mountain Lodge Farm and more. Festival goers can also reserve seats in a guided tasting seminar with Sheri LaVigne of Seattle’s Calf & Kid. For even more cheese feasting, there will be a Cheesemakers Dinner at Trattoria Cuoco on September 23. Head to the Festival website for tickets and additional details.

Southern Artisan Cheese Festival 2014

Nashville, Tennessee

If you’re not on the West Coast, you’re in luck! The Southern Artisan Cheese Festival is also Saturday, September 27, in Nashville, Tennessee. Cheesemakers and food artisans from eight states, Virginia down to Alabama, will gather in the historic Neuhoff Building in Nashville to celebrate Southern cheese. Plenty of Southern craft beer will be poured while you mingle and sample cheeses from Caromont Farm, Sequatchie Cove Creamery, Many Fold Farm and many more. Start your weekend with a Curds and Cocktails kick-off the night before. Get ticket info here.

If you attend one of these events, please hop on over to the Cheese and Champagne Facebook page and tell us your favorite cheese finds!
