The Little Falls Cheese Festival has scheduled its first fundraiser on December 1, 2022, from 5-7 pm at Creative Designs by Tiffany, 78 S Main Street in Dolgeville.

Teri Chace, with Team Cheese, said that there are a lot of farms around the area, and they’ve found that dairy has become less profitable. “There has been a cheesemaking renaissance in this area, so the Cheese Festival has become popular because people come here to try cheese.”

She said that she wants people to know that the Cheese Festival is non-profit.”Our expenses have exploded. We need more portapotties and shuttle busses. Nothing bad, but it’s growing pains.”

Chace said that one of the things that they’ve never done is a fundraiser, and they felt that a pairing of wine and cheese would be the perfect event. “I really wanted to launch with wine and cheese because we have a lot of avid attendees who are maniacs. They come with a cooler on wheels, and they spend $400.”

“This is going to be a cheese education evening,” she stated.
