Cheese Fests of the Future
Today’s Groupon gets you into the first-ever Colorado Cheese Fest. If this first year goes well, what can you expect from a vastly expanded second Colorado Cheese Fest?
- historical cheese exhibit: Was the First Cheese an Accident and Who Ate It?
- virtual reality brie
- Pete Rose memorabilia and autograph session (caused by double booking the room, not Pete Rose’s legendary interest in cheese)
- Mac A. Roni & Cheez, the awful double-ventriloquist comedy quartet
- an experimental ray that doubles a festival-goer’s interest in cheese and causes sterility

Fromage to Yours
Expert gourmand Jackie Rebideau has a peculiar passion for cheese. In an effort to share this ardor with the public, she created Fromage to Yours, a company that holds classes and special events to educate people about this celebrated edible. In addition to her recently launched grilled cheese food truck, Mobile Meltz, Jackie teaches pupils about the art of making artisan cheeses such as mozzarella, halloumi, ricotta, and paneer, demonstrating tasteful techniques and dispelling myths that the holes in swiss cheese are formed by mini meteors training for future journeys to the moon. Fromage to Yours also orchestrates special events such as the Colorado Cheese Festival, which more than 150 samples of artisanal American cheese.
