Triangle Ferment Fest 2021 (Nov. 14th) – Reserved Parking Sign Up


The Triangle Ferment Fest is a unique food festival in the Triangle area of North Carolina (Raleigh, Cary, Durham, Chapel Hill, and Pittsboro) that both teaches and celebrates all things fermented. This one day festival consists of demos, presentations, and hands-on workshops.

Outside under vendor tents, festival goers will have fun learning about different types of ferments, signing up for upcoming classes, and sampling and buying fermented foods and related products from our passionate vendors. For those new to fermenting, our Ask-an-Expert table will have local experts from area universities and businesses, available to answer your questions. And our culture share booth will give you the opportunity to share cultures such as kombucha SCOBYs, milk kefir grains, and sourdough starter.

Join us for a free workshop at the festival – more details coming soon!
