An artisanal cheese and beer festival with a focus on southern cheese-makers and NC breweries. This is a two-session festival with 300 attendees at each session. We’re featuring 16 cheese-makers, over 12 breweries, and other artisan food producers. Buy tickets here.
Event will take place at The Cloth Mill at Eno River which is a unique, urban event venue located in the historic Eno River Mill campus in downtown Hillsborough, NC. The space is truly beautiful with its exposed brick walls, massive windows, high ceilings, and original wood beams and columns.
Live music by The Ivory Boys.
Ticket includes a souvenir tasting glass, unlimited samples of cheese and beer, insulated bag to store cheese purchases, live music, and tasty treats from local artisans including charcuterie, handmade bread, crackers, and small-batch jellies and pickles.
Proceeds benefit RAFI USA. The 2017 Curds & Crafts Festival provided $10,000 in proceeds for RAFI! “This small group has had far reaching impacts… writing the legislation for the National Organic Program… saving hundreds of family farms from foreclosure… preserving the rights of farmers to save seed and develop new varieties, advocating for farm worker’s rights and more.” – Alex Hitt
