We had a beautiful day for the 2021 festival!

The 2021 festival was held at Botanist and Barrel in Cedar Grove, NC on Sunday, November 14th, 2021, 1-5 p.m. We had an enthusiastic crowd of fermenters join us for the cool and sunny day. Outside under vendor tents, festival goers had 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, we had an Ask-an-Expert table with local experts from area universities and businesses, available to answer your questions.

We expect to post videos of our workshop speakers on our new YouTube channel sometime in December, so subscribe to the channel so you can see them when they’re posted.

And keep an eye out in the new year for the announcement of the date for our 2022 festival. Sign up on our mailing list to stay in the loop and get the latest information.


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 workshops.
