Using quarterly packages, on 2017Q2, I have it:

$ pkg search cinnamon
cinnamon-2.4.6_4               Fork of GNOME Shell with layout similar to GNOME 2
cinnamon-control-center-2.4.2_3 Control center for Cinnamon
cinnamon-desktop-2.4.2_1       Additional UI API for cinnamon
cinnamon-menus-2.4.1           Additional UI API for cinnamon
cinnamon-screensaver-2.4.1     GNOME screen saver and locker
cinnamon-session-2.4.3_1       Session component for the cinnamon desktop
cinnamon-settings-daemon-2.4.3_3 GNOME 3 settings daemon
cinnamon-translations-2.4.2    Translations for the cinnamon desktop

In /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf I have just the default:

FreeBSD: {
  url: "pkg+${ABI}/quarterly",
  mirror_type: "srv",
  signature_type: "fingerprints",
  fingerprints: "/usr/share/keys/pkg",
  enabled: yes
