Chile Cheese Festival

It’s time once again for one of Roswell and Chaves County’s favorite events! The Chile Cheese Festival! This year, the event will take place September 22 & 23, 2017.


Who’s ready to smell the wonderful aroma of fresh roasted chiles as it permeates the air in downtown Roswell? You can purchase all sorts of fresh fruits and vegetables, crafts, collectibles and of course the beautiful red ristras from Graves Farm!


What would the festival be without cheese? Take a tour of the Leprino Cheese Plant (be sure to follow the strict dress code).


There will be plenty of family fun and kids activities, as well as some great food!


This year there will be lots of new and exciting things to see and do!

Make a Ristra of your own, pet a zebra or kangaroo, win the Regional Green Chile Stew Championship and take home the prize money along with a traveling trophy! This, and more, is in the planning stages. As details are confirmed we will update information… it’s going to be a fun festival!
