The One & Only Beer Cheese Festival in the WORLD!
The Beer Cheese Festival in beautiful, historic downtown Winchester, KY is the only festival in the world dedicated to the celebration of beer cheese!
Every 2nd Saturday in June, downtown comes alive with music, food, crafts, shopping, children’s activities, and of course, beer cheese. Lots and lots of beer cheese!
The event is free to the public.
Ask almost anyone what the best part of the Beer Cheese Festival is and they’ll tell you, “Sampling beer cheese!” –and they’re right. We start at 10 am and go all the way to 5 pm. You can sample beer cheese from any of our vendors.
Sample them all. Find your favorite. Cast your vote.
