There is no other place that you can sample so many different Canadian cheeses and purchase them at direct-from-producer prices than at The Great Canadian Cheese Festival.

If you love cheese, you will love the seventh edition of #TGCCF—now the biggest artisan cheese show in North America—on June 3-4, 2017, at Picton Fairgrounds in the heart of Ontario’s Prince Edward County, just south of Belleville and Highway 401 in Bay of Quinte Region.

Show hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Close to 6,000 cheese lovers are expected to attend.

You will be able to sample and purchase close to 200 different cheeses made by artisan producers from Atlantic Canada to British Columbia. You’ll be able to meet cheesemakers themselves, including many from Québec.

All in all, cheese producers, specialty food producers, small-batch wineries, craft breweries, craft cideries, a distillery and other exhibitors and vendors have reserved 130+ booths. There will be an estimated 500 foods and beverages on offer, much more than you can take in during one day. Plan to make a weekend of it! Consider the Weekend VIP Pass ticket option described below.
