CheeseFest, Australia’s biggest cheese festival, kicks off tomorrow at Rymill Park/Murlawirrapurka in CBD.

Originally set to run over Saturday and Sunday, the ticketed event has been extended with its added Friday night session on October 22.

The three-day festival, which is a part of this year’s Bloom collective, will showcase the finest local cheeses, food producers, chefs, and beverages from across South Australia.

Festival Director Kris Lloyd says they are excited to add the extra Friday session to this year’s CheeseFest.

“We can’t wait for festival-goers to enjoy an extra night of entertainment, food, and beverages,” Kris said.

“The Friday session will commence at 4pm and will include live music from a fabulous selection of local musicians, Never Never G&T Bar, The Beer and Cider Garden, Burrata Bar, Halloumi Bar and delicacies from our carefully curated selection of restaurants.”

On Saturday, the demo stage will kick off featuring the state’s favourite cooks.

“We are thrilled to have some of South Australia’s best chefs who are giving their time to entertain us on the cooking demo stage,” Kris said.

“Full of laughs, beautiful food, and nothing short of a stellar line-up of our best-known food personalities including Simon Bryant, Laura Sharrad, Jake Kellie, Kane Pollard, and Karena Armstrong to name a few.”

Local South Australian producers will be on hand showcasing their world-class produce in what has been a tough 18 months for the food and hospitality industry.

“We are very lucky to be able to bring one of South Australia’s much loved foodie events back during this time for all to enjoy and we hope that South Australians’ will get behind us and support this event that supports many different industries.

“We hope to see South Australians at Rymill Park/Murlawirrapurka, come and join us, sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful spring weather with friends and family while enjoying some of the world’s best produce.”
