Buckle up, we’re in for a Gouda ride

The Kurrajong Kitchen Cheese Lovers Festival is coming to an exciting new location in 2018 - the Brazilian Fields in beautiful Centennial Park!

This annual one-day celebration of all things cheese and more cheese will take place on Saturday 16th of June, 10.00 am - 5.00 pm. Tickets are now on sale and start from $30pp.

Cheese lovers can expect a tantalising day of over 50 speciality stalls, cheese-related workshops, the amateur Fancy Cheesecake Competition, fine dining, live music and kid's entertainment.

New for 2018 is a Global Cheese District showcasing the best cheese varieties from France, Italy and Spain.

Want to take your passion for cheese to a whole new level? Enjoy the exclusive VIP tent offering a massage zone, 'VIPicnic' area and plenty of exclusive extras and treats.

Special guest, Justine Schofield, host of Everyday Gourmet and former Masterchef contestant, will be serving up The Cheese Menu, a three-course French heritage inspired cheese menu, hosting a FREE Cooking with Cheese Workshop and judging the festival's amateur Fancy Cheesecake Competition. Justine said "Cheese is an important part of my life and heritage, so I'm proud to champion this wonderful ingredient at this unique festival. It's exciting to see the innovation and progress Australia has made to the cheese making industry and my menu will focus on celebrating some amazing Aussie cheese produce with a fun twist on classics!"

Learn, taste and drink your way around the festival with an amazing line-up of 50 handpicked speciality stalls offering cheese, wine, beer and condiments throughout the day. Highlights include Melbourne's internet sensation Stix, who are making their first debut outside their bricks and mortar with their frozen cheesecake on a stick and Sprout & Kernel, the festival's very first vegan cheese stall! Share a platter with your friends and enjoy live jazz, blues and funk with the likes of Cruisin' Deuces, Luke Zanc Trio, DJ D-FLAT and Maz Mazak.

For those who like the finer things in life, join Ben Hughes from the Australian Wine and Beer School for an Intimate Cheese and Wine Experience or go down the rabbit hole with White Rabbit Brewery's Beer & Cheese Workshop.

Plus for the little ones, there's the awesome Legendairy Kids Zone!
