Little Falls Cheese Festival

On Saturday, July 11, 11am - 6pm, Main Street First will present the first annual Little Falls Cheese Festival
on West Main Street, between Ann St. and 4th Street.

With 34 booths offering a vast array of New York cow, goat and sheep artisanal cheese, (including several national award-winners) and other related products, live music throughout the day provided by CleenStreet and The Dharma Bums String Band, food on the street, a walking tour of LF Cheese history, and a one act mystery play (Where's the Cheese?) provided by the
Little Falls Theater Company, you won't want to miss out.

Our local restaurants will get into the swing of things, too: pizza, our hometown specialty, will be offered in several
different locations and will give visitors a chance to choose their favorite. Also look for warm quiche, luscious
creamy cheesecake and many other specials.

Many people who visit our
web site are not quite sure
Little Falls is located.

The red dot in the southeast corner of Herkimer County is Little Falls.

We suggest that you get off I-90 at exit 29A Central New York State and spend a few hours in our City. Walk down our Main Street, visit Canal Place, or the Lock - the Worlds third highest single lift lock at 48 feet.

We are just four hours from New York City, four hours from Boston and four hours from Buffalo.

"When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight or for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendents will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
John Ruskin (1819-1900)

"We believe that land-use issues should be guided by a set of smart-growth principles that incorporate centralized development, protection of natural resources and our working landscape, development of transportation options, and healthy neighborhoods where we can walk or bike to our destinations and have ready access to recreation"
