CheeseFest + FERMENT | Rymill Park/Murlawirrapurka | 26 & 27 Oct 2019

Food.  FERMENT.  Wine.

CheeseFest & FERMENT presents all things Cheese and all things Fermented.  The match made in HEAVEN just got CHEESIER!

Australia’s biggest Cheese Festival and only Fermentation Festival has been combined into one location over two days this Spring.  Celebrating the match made in heaven – Cheese and Wine – with all things fermented has never looked (or tasted!) so good. Whether you’re a die hard foodie, a craft beer fanatic, a home fermenter, Australia’s top wino or you simply want to have a picnic and enjoy the live music with your friends and family, CheeseFest is the place to be.

Over one hundred food and beverage stalls featuring SA (and Australia’s) best and brightest cheese, food and beverage producers with fresh, local produce will feature in the picturesque setting of Rymill Park

Here’s a taste of what they have in store for you this year:

  • Australia’s most amazing cheesemakers
  • South Australia’s finest winemakers
  • Fermentation masterminds
  • Australia’s most innovative food producers
  • Local award-winning brewers and distillers
  • Exclusive access to dozens of different local foods and beverages

There are a wide variety of events on offer over the weekend including:

  • Free Cooking Demos and Masterclasses from renowned Chefs and Fermenters
  • Guided tastings from some of the top cheesemakers, brewers, distillers and vintners in the business
  • Oh, and TWO G&T bars, if you just want to wet your whistle
  • Stroll on over to their French, Italian, and Spanish Quarters (The best European cheeses and wines, without the jetlag!)
  • Tarts, Toasties, and Tea for those who feel like relaxing
  • Family Picnic Area for the kids
