Meredith Dairy Fest

Come out Saturday, June 8th and Sunday, June 9th, to the family-friendly Meredith Dairy Fest. This annual festival highlights the rich history of dairy farming in Delaware County and celebrates the dairy farmers of today. Ushering in Dairy Month, the festival offers two days of live music, farm animals, local farm and craft vendors, a kids activity tent, historical demonstrations and displays, a vintage base ball game as well as great food and drink.

You can learn the history of the dairy industry directly from farmers and ask them all your inquiries about farming practices, local milk and dairy products and whatever else comes to mind!
