About Classes & Events

The 8th annual Fermentation Fest is upon us!  We have more classes than ever to choose from and we’re thrilled with the international flavor of this year’s ferments.

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 two very special Featured Fermenters. For the first weekend we have founder of Fermentation on Wheels – Tara Whitsitt.

REGISTRATION – All class and event registration takes place online. We advise registering early, as many of our events sell out! The only exception to this is our Fermentation 101 drop-in classes.

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.
