The Savoie Cheese Festival: an unmissable summer event!

Since 2005, the Association for Traditional Cheeses of the Savoie Alps (AFTALP) has been holding a SAVOIE CHEESE FESTIVAL each summer.

The main aim of the event? Bringing together members of the local population and stakeholders in the Savoie Cheese industry. Over the years, the Savoie Cheese Festival has been attracting more and more people. It has become the key summer event in the Savoie region.

Held in a different location each year, it allows the region’s inhabitants and holidaymakers to get a glimpse of the “behind the scenes” workings of the cheese production process with its associated values: protected environments, taste profiles, specific know-how and exceptional terroirs - all in the name of quality and fostering a spirit of togetherness.
