Event Details

So many artisan cheeses, so many specialty foods!

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

If you love artisan cheese and specialty foods, you will love the seventh edition of #TGCCF—now the biggest artisan cheese and food 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. Weekend VIP Pass holders are admitted at 10 a.m. Some 5,000 cheese lovers are expected to attend, rain or shine.

You will be able to sample and purchase 150 different cheeses made by artisan producers from Atlantic Canada to British Columbia. You’ll be able to meet cheesemakers themselves, including award-winning producers from Québec.

All in all, cheese producers, artisan food producers, small-batch wineries, craft breweries, craft cideries and a distillery and other exhibitors and vendors have reserved 100+ booths.

Organizer

Cheese Lover Productions Inc.

The annual Great Canadian Cheese Festival, since its launch in 2011, has become the biggest artisan cheese show in North America. Founded in 2014, the biennial Canadian Cheese Awards/Le Concours des fromages fins canadiens is the biggest cheese competition in Canada.

Georgs Kolesnikovs, founder of both the Cheese Festival and Cheese Awards, has extensive experience in event management and promotion—and a lifelong passion for cheese.

Georgs first fell in love with artisan cheese when he tasted Oka as a teenager, when the Trappists still made it. He maintains the popular blog CheeseLover.ca.

Events like The Great Canadian Cheese Festival and Canadian Cheese Awards/Le Concours des fromages fins canadiens cannot be produced without many willing hands and smart minds. Georgs considers himself fortunate to have associates he can count on:

  • Terry Chong, Director of Operations
  • Rebecca Crosgrey, Event Manager
  • Jackie Armet, Cheese Co-ordinator and Awards Co-ordinator
  • Colette Drisdale, Liaison, Quebec Cheese Producers
  • Heather Robertson, Ticketing Co-ordinator and Awards Registrar
  • Jeanne Rodier, Awards Co-ordinator
  • Joanne Fralick, Promotions Specialist
  • Lin Chong, Associate Festival Director.
