About Classes & Events

The 8th annual Fermentation Fest is upon us! Register online for over 50 classes, hands-on workshops, tastings, lectures, and demonstrations, taught by renowned foragers, fermenters, artists, chocolatiers, poets, bakers, and brewers.



FEATURED FERMENTERS For each weekend of the Fest we have three very special Featured Fermenters: Gary Paul Nabhan, Tara Whitsitt, and Lou Bank.

REGISTRATION – All class and event registration takes place online. We advise registering early, as many of our events sell out!

SCHOLARSHIPS – We have a limited number of 50% scholarships available for students who cannot afford the full price of the class. To apply for a scholarship, you will need to submit an online application here.

VOLUNTEER – If you are interested in being part of the behind-the-scenes team that makes these events happen – click here.

DONATE – You can make a donation to Fermentation Fest online or donate specifically to the scholarship fund when registering for your class.
