It’s the third annual Curds & Crafts Festival. We’re celebrating southern artisan cheesemakers and North Carolina craft brewers with the natural and delicious pairing of cheeses and beers. Sample the wares and chat with cheesemakers and brewers about their craft. Tickets include unlimited samples of beer and cheese and take-home goodies to be announced. There will be live music by the Ivory Boys. Photos from last year’s event can be seen here.
The event is at the Cloth Mill at Eno River, a unique “industrial chic” setting located in the historic Eno River Mill campus in West Hillsborough. It is an indoor venue with climate control and electricity. The space is truly beautiful with its exposed brick walls, massive windows, high ceilings, and original wood beams and columns. The address is 437 Dimmocks Mill Road (Suite 3) in Hillsborough. View a parking map here.
There will be two sessions this year:
Session 1: 1 PM – 3 PM (arrive at 12:45 to begin check-in)
Session 2: 4 PM – 6 PM (arrive at 3:45 to begin check-in)
In the past, tickets have sold out. Note: ticket buyers must bring a valid ID to enter the festival.
