We are so excited to bring the story of Cheshire’s “Mammoth Cheese” to life at the
1st Annual Cheshire Cheese Fest!

Join us on July 29th for a cheesy, fun-filled day beginning in the morning with a Cheshire Cheesy Kids Fun Run and a 5K Run & Walk.

Visit the Cheshire Cheese Press monument, then enjoy exquisite tastings of wine, cheese and beer pairings during the VIP hour, hosted by Kelly’s Package Store, with food presented by chef Xavier Jones, owner of Big Daddy’s Cheesesteak.

The beer garden will feature limited production beers produced exclusively for Cheshire Cheese Fest, and music by acoustic solo artist, Jim Witherell.

VIP tickets may be purchased in person at the Cheshire Block Party on July 12th, on Kelly’s website (here) or in person at Kelly’s Package Store.

VIP Tickets are $40.      

But what to do with the children?! Oh, the children!

With a field full of activities for the kids, you’re sure to please the whole family!

Let the kids burn off their summer energy by jumping in the bounce house, sliding down the giant inflatable slide, and since you’ll be at Cheshire Elementary School…there’s an ENTIRE playground smack in the middle of the festival!

There will also be face painting, craft stations, a pig roast and so much more...with energetic DJ Mark Santella MC'ing it all.

When the kids start to tucker out, or when you need a "cool down", bring them to a reading of “A Big Cheese for the White House” – the true story of the giant cheese made by the town of Cheshire for President Thomas Jefferson. Readings hosted by Berkshire Blue Cheese.

General admission for adults and kids is $5/person. With a whole afternoon of fun at that price, you won't even have to choose which kid to leave at home!

“Will you have raffles?” Raffles!? Of course! You could win your very own cheesemaking kit, gift cards to the best restaurants, rounds of golf, tools, and other really cool stuff.

Did we mention that there will be a KICKBALL game for the adults!? Yeah, we’re throwing it back to THOSE days. Join us for the VIP hour from 11 – 12, get your wine, beer, and cheese samples on…and then head over for a mildly competitive game of kickball hosted by Berkshire Social Sports Club. You won’t want to miss this insanely cheesy day in Cheshire.

Come on...don't be laugh-tose intolerant.
