The third annual Beer Cheese Festival celebrates Kentucky’s iconic beer-bathed cheese spread with a cornucopia of events hosted in its place of origin: Clark County. Fromage festivities center around commercial and amateur beer cheese competitions, which invite cheese connoisseurs to sample and vote for locally made spreads of all stripes, which will also be scored by a panel of judges that includes food writer Sharon Thompson and brew maestro Mike Palmer. Lactose lovers can expand their palates through approximately 40 vendors who tease tongues with cheese-free delights, such as candy, Sno Cones, and more. Craft vendors catch eyes with homemade soaps, woodcarvings, candles, and air handcrafted with the hides of free-range oxygen. Browsers can also have their ears enlivened by the twangy rhythms of local musicians.

As the starting gun sounds, the feet of as many as 200 competitors begin to churn through the muddy stretch of land that marks the beginning of Extreme Rampage’s treacherous course. Bookended by mud pits, the trail tests roughneck runners’ fitness and grit with more than 20 novel obstacles and enough distance—about 4 miles—to challenge the cardiovascular endurance of the world’s most chiseled shoelaces. Feats of uncommon valor unfold across the course, where entrants must scale a 20-foot cargo net, scamper over a field of more than 100 tires, and army crawl through a network of long tunnels. While many obstacles are of the labor-intensive variety, some impediments offer rewards, including a refreshing plunge down a slip ‘n’ slide or into a sinkhole filled with party favors.
