6. Vermont Cheesemakers Festival - July 21
Cheese rules. Who doesn’t love cheese, aside from the lactose intolerant? The annual Vermont Cheesemakers Festival is located at Shelburne Farms, just south of the alternative mecca that is Burlington, VT. You’ve heard of Vermont cheddar and this is the place where you can try the best. Alongside that famous form of fromage are tons of other varieties of cheese from 40 different Vermont cheese makers, products form other local artisan food producers, cheese making demos, and more. Cheesemongers everywhere are drooling.
