“My brother came from Albany for the Little Falls Cheese Festival. He said, ‘I can’t believe I just spent $130 on cheese…on cheese!! I’m so happy!’ “

“Came w/son and granddaughter. Even with the rain…it was great. Well put on event..so many vendors and samples. We all love cheese…got a lot to bring home…and wine. A nice enjoyable family event…looking forward to next year.”

“We had a great time and delicious food! It was great food and entertainment!”

“Once again, awesome!!! Thank you, Little Falls, for putting this together!! Proud to be a valley girl!”

“Had a great time……..music, food, cheese galore……I will go back next year.”

“OMG, I think I’ve gone to Cheese Heaven!”

“Congrats to one and all on another well-organized event.  I liked the new layout for the vendor booths.  The music was a plus!!”

“My whole family went yesterday to the cheese festival in Little Falls and it was very nice. We are cheese lovers and got to sample and buy many different kinds. It was our first time there.”

“I got there before 10…and I found this great stuff…Norweigan-style cheese with cumin, cloves, and caraway. Sounds weird, right? It’s delicious. Spanish spices on the other. Made right here in Frankfort NY.”

“Went last year and it was a great festival. Things sold out quickly! Music was neat and the crowd was friendly.”

“Wow, lived in that area all those years and never knew it was the cheese Capitol of the USA!”

“We visited the little museum there and they told all about it. It truly was the cheese capitol!”

I originated in Little Falls but have since left, and in 2003 felt that it was a dying town (sorry). I have returned for Canal Days a few times, but have remained convinced that there’s nothing in Little Falls for me anymore. However, I have to say that I was tremendously impressed with your Cheese Festival, my first return in about 8 years.

“The booklet we received was excellent. I enjoyed learning so much history about LF and its cheese history, things I never knew having grown up there. I loved seeing in the booklet a list of all the eateries you have now, and that they had specials for Cheese Festival day (cheese-themed). I read the whole thing while I was there and did the walking tour. I learned a ton about different cheeses, a cultural experience I will cherish…

“We were attracted to the commotion of a new venue when the play was about to start, and I was thrilled to see such a modern entertainment establishment. We enjoyed the little play, and I was warmly filled with hope for this town…

“The historical society was another surprisingly wonderful experience…the woman in charge at the museum gave me professionally-made, visually appealing brochures…I have marked each event in my calendar, and I look forward to attending every one!

“Congratulations on turning things around in Little Falls…your Cheese Festival was a huge success. I sung these praises on Facebook to inform my local friends to be sure to attend this event next year. And maybe someday, I’ll move back home…”
