Little Falls, NY – The Little Falls Cheese Festival is pleased to announce that our 2nd annual celebration of New York’s
artisanal cheesemakers is scheduled for Saturday, July 9, 2016 from 10am – 5pm. Please mark your calendars for this
day of food, entertainment, and fun right here in downtown Little Falls.
Last year’s inaugural festival exceeded expectations with upwards of 2,500 people in attendance! This year, the Little
Falls Cheese Festival will once again showcase cheesemakers and gourmet food producers from across New York State.
This will also be a great opportunity to celebrate the historical roots of Little Falls wherein the first U.S. cheese exchange
occurred during the 3rd quarter of the 19th century. This famous moment set the price of cheese for the country and
influenced the price of cheese in Europe!
In addition to delicious food and rich history to explore in scenic Little Falls, there will be family friendly entertainment for
all to enjoy! This will include live music by local area bands as well as live stage performances courtesy of LiFT (Little
Falls Theater Company). Of course, local merchants and restaurants will be available for your shopping needs, so be sure
to check out their unique products and offerings.
Community events such this are truly a group effort. The Little Falls Cheese Festival committee thanks everyone who
helped to make last year’s celebration a success, with special gratitude to Main Street First as a key sponsor, the Little
Falls Family YMCA and the City of Little Falls. We welcome all of you to join us on Saturday, July 9 for another day of fun
and exploration. Please visit www.littlefallscheesefestival.com or like ‘Little Falls Cheese Festival’ on Facebook for more
