The Cheese and Pastrami Festival

This festival marks the return of the shepherds from the mountains and the time when farmers would get back their sheep and the cheese produced over the summer. The 2006 annual festival will be the best yet with over 20 types of cheese, plum brandy, fruit & vegetable growers and local barbequed pastrami! There will be live folk music throughout the day and local artisans exposing traditional objects at the arts & crafts fair.
