Dairy is an important part of local economies throughout the North Country, and the Cream Cheese Festival celebrates dairy with music, contests, games, and more.
But the centerpiece is the cheesecake: “They give out free pieces of it, and over 3000 pieces are gone in probably an hour, so I think that that’s really a highlight for people”, says Virkler.
Information about the event can be found online at creamcheesefestival.com. On the site is a rundown of music, a schedule of events and games, the festival’s sponsors, parking, directions, and a lot of other helpful information.
Virkler says his favorite part of the festival is music: “I’m also responsible for the music on our stage… And as much time as I can spend kind of listening to the bands, that’s what I like to do.”
Virkler says that the headlining band for the festival will be local favorites the Todd Hobbin band. The band will be on the main street stage from 4-6 p.m.
