LITTLE FALLS, NY – The Little Falls Cheese Festival committee has announced the date for the city’s eighth annual Cheese Festival, which will be held Saturday, October 7, 2023. Planning is well underway for another festival filled with New York cheesemakers, gourmet foods, craft beverages, and more on Main Street from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“We’ve made history every year with the attendance of our festival, and we are so grateful for all the enthusiastic support,” said Teri Chace of the Little Falls Cheese Festival committee. “So this year, we’re looking to pay tribute to our city’s roots in the cheese industry. And, of course, we’ll feature more fantastic New York beverages, goodies, and cheeses!”

The festival will feature various New York State farm-produced cheeses, from hard cheeses such as cheddar, gouda, and Havarti to soft cheeses, goat cheeses, cheese curds, yogurts, and more. Numerous New York-based gourmet food and craft beverage vendors will also be on hand to complement the cheeses. Also returning this year are showcases for local entertainment and musical acts all along Main Street, the Food Truck Food Court, and a free, cheese-themed play. Shuttle busses are returning as well for ease of parking, this time with additional shuttles to reduce the wait to get to the festival.

The Little Falls Cheese Festival is New York State’s premier gathering of cheesemakers, with an estimated 8,000 to 10,000 people in attendance last year. Keep up to date with planning and vendor announcements by following the Little Falls Cheese Festival on Facebook and Instagram or by visiting
