We're Going To The Great Canadian Cheese Festival... Again!

When Thomas Wolfe wrote You Can't Go Home Again, I think he just had never been to a cheese and wine and beer festival because THAT, my friends, is MY idea of home sweet home. And I'm DEFINITELY going back.

Inside the Crystal Palace at the Picton Fairgrounds aka home of the TGCCF. The booths spread across the grounds, inside and outside. Over 120+ vendors will be there this year. That's a LOT o' sampling, my friends.

Let's go back to last June, shall we? My mister and I, plus two equally cheese-obsessed pals, took a road trip out to Picton, Ontario to check out The Great Canadian Cheese Festival. After a day of sampling and buying bags upon bags of treats to bring home, we know we had to make it an annual tradition. 

This is how excited I was to be at the festival last year. IT'S THAT GOOD, FOLKS!

Next weekend, June 4-5th, The Great Canadian Cheese Festival will take over Picton once again with amazing cheeses, tasty wines, and delicious craft brews from all around the country. It's actually the largest cheese festival that has both samples AND tons of goodies to buy so that you can keep the cheesy magic flowing when you get home.

Here are a few of the goodies we brought home last year!

Yup, that's Sriracha chevrai and it was amazing.

I'm not sure these pickled beans lasted an hour once we got them home. YUM.

The entire experience was fantastic and we're thrilled to be going back again! Last year we had the most perfect weather and I'm crossing my fingers it'll be the same this time around. 

The Great Canadian Cheese Festival is happening June 4-5th in Picton, Ontario!

I'll be sharing our experience via social media and on the blog. Be sure to find me on Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram for lots of cheesy pics! Also check out the #TGCCF hashtag.
