Some may say that it's really cheesy, but many Central New Yorkers look forward to this event each and every year. And this year, festival organizers promise that it will be the biggest and best year yet.

It has been announced the festival will once again take over Little Falls, New York from 10 AM to 5 PM on Saturday, October 1, 2022. The free festival will be held for the 7th year on Main Street.

With the success we’ve had and the growth we’ve seen year after year, it only made sense to provide more of what everyone loves,” said Teri Chace of the Little Falls Cheese Festival committee.

“More of the amazing New York-made wines and spirits, more tasty goodies, and of course more cheeses!

I've Never Been Before - What Can I Expect From The Festival?

Great question. If you're someone who absolutely adores cheese of every variety, this is the place for you. The festival will feature various New York State farm-produced cheeses, from hard cheeses such as cheddar, gouda, and Havarti to soft cheeses, goat cheeses, cheese curds, yogurts, and more.

The other cool part about the Little Falls Cheese Festival is that numerous New York-based gourmet food and craft beverage vendors will also be on hand to complement the cheeses. There will also be showcases for local entertainment and musical acts all along Main Street, the Food Truck Food Court – which will host this year’s free, cheese-themed play – and convenient shuttle buses for ease of parking.
