The American Cheese Society will host its annual Festival of Cheese in Raleigh, NC this summer!
One of the biggest and most comprehensive events of its kind, the Festival of Cheese boasts some 1,600+ artisan, farmstead, and specialty cheeses and cultured products from throughout North America for attendees to sample.
Open to the public, the 2012 Festival of Cheese will feature the cheeses (1,600+) entered in the 2012 ACS Competition, highlighting winners and recognizing their mastery of cheesemaking. In addition to an amazing array of cheeses, the Festival of Cheese features artisan producers and local purveyors of cheese accompaniments from crackers, charcuterie, preserves, and honeys, to wine and craft beer that guests can sample in their commemorative take-away wine glass.
The Festival of Cheese is open to the general public on Saturday, August 4 from 7:00 – 9:30 p.m. at the Raleigh Convention Center in Raleigh, NC.
Tickets are available for $55/person and include unlimited food and beverage samples. A cash bar will also be available.
