10th & 11th September 2016
From the first event where there were a few stalls and a couple of small marquees, the Festival now uses every available bit of space on the site.
More food stalls have been added this year. You'll be able to buy just about every variety of cheese from the very local Blue Vinney to Sparkenhoe Red Leicester, Cornish Blue and more. There is a wide variety of other foods on offer from bread, biscuits & beef, to coffee, chocolate and olives. We're also pleased to welcome two new Dorset drinks producers this year - Black Cow Vodka and Conker Spirit Gin.
Our local store, Harts www.hartsofstur.com are showcasing some local producers and an omelette competition in the Mousetrap. Follow them on Facebook or visit the store for more details on how to win VIP tickets for the Festival.
It's not all food though - there is so much more on offer – lots of new craft stalls this year, children's entertainment, a real ale tent & more, all accompanied by great live music. Come and join us and find out why Sturminster Cheese Festival is considered to be the best event of the year by our visitors and producers.
Entry is £5 on the gate, children 14 & under free.
