Fromage a Trois Cheese Festival is the ultimate cheese-lover’s day out and is returning to the glorious Werribee Park and Mansion. Celebrating artisan cheese producers and knowledgeable cheesemongers, Fromage a Trois is a chance to meet the makers, find out more about how the cheese you love is made or discover a new favourite.

Create your own picnic hamper from the cheeses on offer, head to a cheese masterclass, pair cheese driven dishes with wine, beer, cider or spirits of watch chef demonstrations where cheese is the hero. This is the day to throw caution to the wind and indulge in cheese in all its forms, with a sensational music line-up setting the beat to your day.
