Organiser CheeseFest Australia Pty Ltd

Organiser of CheeseFest 2021 - Friday Night Twilight

Director, cheesemaker and South Australian Premium Food and Wine Ambassador, Kris Lloyd AM has been the driving force behind the successful festival. In 2017 Kris introduced South Australia to FERMENT the FESTIVAL with great success, and this year has decided to combine the two festivals. CheeseFest is back by popular demand and the every growing interest in Fermentation and Gut Health warrants the two festivals creating a platform for visitors to indulge in all things Cheese and fermented; which covers a surprising large number of foods and beverages!

Visitors to this food, wine, arts and culture experience will be able to enjoy all the delights of the Australian cheese and wine scene in one location, experience some of Australia's best up and coming musicians, learn from famous chefs and food personalities, or just kick back and relax in the beautiful, sunny Rymill Park (Murlawirrapurka) with family and friends!
