All tickets will be transferred to the new dates and ticketholders will be contacted via e-mail with this information.***

Hunter Valley Cheese & Chocolate Festival - Postponement
Date: Saturday 23 July 2022
Following feedback from many of the Cheese & Chocolate vendors, the decision has been made to postpone the Hunter Valley Cheese & Chocolate Festival at Hope Estate until 2022 – the new date has been set for Saturday, 23 July 2022.
Owner Michael Hope said, “this has been a tough decision to make given there’s such high demand for activities and events. A lot has changed with COVID, especially with a tasting event like Cheese & Chocolate, along with the changes that our vendors have had to make within their businesses. We realise we have to accommodate for these changes and would rather make this call now and concentrate on making 2022 an amazing experience”.
Hope Estate would like to thank all ticketholders and vendors for their support and understand this decision may come as a disappointment. Tickets will automatically be transferred to the new date. For questions or other information please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
