Pack up your friends, the kids, a cooler and even your dogs (on leashes please) and head to the 7th Anniversary Finger Lakes Cheese Festival, a fun-filled family day of food, music, animals, games, classes and more -- once again at our member farm, Sunset View Creamery -- just east of Watkins Glen and south of Ithaca. (DIRECTIONS & MAP at the bottom of page.)
You'll have the chance to taste all the cheeses of the farms of the Finger Lakes Cheese Alliance in one place, and enjoy plenty of local foods and beverages provided by our friends and neighbors. Think of it as a big summer family picnic meets a farm market! Plus, being our 5th Anniversary we have lots of surprises in store!

Admission is $5 for attendees 12-21, $8 per adult in advance online or $8 for 12-21 and $10 at the gate, kids under 12 FREE. Our educational seminars featuring cooking demos and pairings will seat 120 people, and cost just $2 a person, per seminar. First come, first seated. Tickets are on sale at the gate only and are first come, first served.

Odessa, NY 14869

GPS coordinates are:  
Lat 42.312417761012485
​Long. -76.78370475769043


4970 County Rd. 14 is located 2 miles south of St. Rt. 224, 17 miles north of St. Rt. 17 (I86), 3 miles East of St. Rt. 14 and 4 miles West of St. Rt. 13.
(County Rd. 14 is also known as Jackson Hill Rd. or Hinman Turnpike Rd. if your GPS won't accept County Rd. 14--many of them don't)

Coming from the North (Watkins Glen)--take St. Rt. 14 South through Montour Falls.  After you pass the NYS Academy of Fire Science (on the hill on the left just outside of Montour Falls), take your SECOND left onto County Road 14 (Jackson Hill Road). Proceed 3 miles to the 4-way stop. We are right in front of you at that intersection.

From the South:  (Horseheads, Corning, Elmira)  Proceed north on St. Rt. 14.  Just as you enter the Village of Montour Falls limits, you will see a Moose Club on your right and H.L. Stephens Furniture Store on your left--just past the Moose, take a right onto County Rd. 14 (Jackson Hill Rd.).  Follow that road 3 miles to a 4 way stop.  Proceed straight through the stop sign (after stopping of course :))) --we are the 2nd place on the right.

From the East: (Ithaca)  Coming from Ithaca, proceed south on St. Rt. 13 to the intersection of St. Rt. 224--go past that intersection to the next right turn (CR 14 or Hinman Turnpike).  Follow CR 14 for 4 miles  As you come down the road, you will see us on the left side.
