A Mega Cheese Festival Is Coming To Sydney Next Month

Sydneysiders, get ready because a cheese festival is coming to you next month.

Bon Fromage Festival is a program recognised for the most mouth-watering stinky cheeses you could ever taste, putting every charcuterie board on Instagram to shame.

Bandt reports that the cheese festival will take place at the Cargo Hall of the Sydney Overseas Passenger Terminal, showcasing the most refined European cheeses paired with exquisite wines. 


There will also be six different bars inside the festival, where Sydneysiders can sip on delicious craft beers and spirits while enjoying the breathtaking views of the Opera House.

Not to mention entertainment will also be provided throughout the day; dinner and a show? What could be better?

And the best part of all, tickets are completely free.

While the festival happened over Zoom last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, festival-goers will be able to marvel at the indulgent cheese buffet in person, trying every cheese imaginable - 80 kg of cheeses, to be exact, according to their website.


Bon Fromage will unveil some the most highly sought after selection of cheeses that include Comté, Cantal, Emmental, Brie, Camembert, Triple-Crème, Langres and Pont L’Évêque.

Attendees will also be able to enjoy the ‘stinky market’ where 12 cheesemongers and chefs will offer their best cheeses and cook up their most exquisite array of amuse-bouche.

Also, if you want to expand your cheese knowledge, the festival will be hosting 10 different masterclasses to stimulate your senses while making you salivate.


While the full program hasn’t been released yet, some masterclasses include ‘wine and cheese pairing’, ‘cheese aesthetics’ and ‘know your blue cheese’.

This festival, which was first launched in 2016, is part of the National Dairy Interbranch Organisation's commitment, celebrating the variety and the distinctiveness of French cheeses in Australia.

The festival aims to continue to inform Australians on how to pair cheeses with different beverages while learning how to integrate cheese into everyday cooking.

The Bon Fromage Festival will run from June 3-5, so make sure you snap up tickets quickly to avoid missing out on the cheesy goodness.
