On November 3rd, in Somerville, just adjacent to Boston, the Massachusetts Cheese Guild will hold their 5th annual Massachusetts Cheese Festival. Over fifteen cheese producers from across Massachusetts will participate with samples of various cheeses from their farms. Unlimited tastings will be provided to attendees (get tickets here). As well as showcasing a myriad of cheese, pairing partners will exhibit products to match with the cheeses according to taste, texture, and age. Wine, cider, and craft beer will be available for purchase to those over 21 at the festival.
The event will be held in two sessions, one lasting from 10:30 am to 1:00 pm, and a second from 1:30 pm to 4:00 pm. Both sessions will have cheese tastings and classes during the allotted time. Tickets are only $40, and get you unlimited cheese sampling, and admission to classes and tasting sessions throughout the day.
