Perhaps the Minnesota Cheese Festival can find a location that allows the cheese samples to be readily and easily accessible. I had to wait at each booth for 20 minutes just to try one sample.

Please, please, please ensure there is not one giant line that forms to move through all the booths. We were so baffled that this happened and figured it was not the original intent...but if it was the original intent of the event organizers we hope that changes for future Cheese Festivals (or we sadly wouldn't participate). And if a giant line does form next year because a few people start the trend, we would hope the event organizers would break it up. We anticipated being able to mingle around approaching booths that looked interesting to us and asking questions. We did ask questions and all the vendors were wonderful and knowledgeable and eager to share information about their products, but we felt really hindered from getting to so many vendors because of the line. Great cheese, beer and wine were great additions, and obviously was a popular event - but please prevent the giant line!!

About Minnesota Cheese Festival

When struck with a cheese craving, Whitney McChane used to turn her sights toward Wisconsin. It wasn’t until the budding cheese connoisseur began to explore co-ops and cheese shops across Minnesota that she came to appreciate the skill and diversity of cheese artisans in her own backyard. In Faribault, she sampled cheeses aged in sandstone caves and in Mankato, she shook hands with the Alemar Cheese Company’s organic, creamy camembert. “People love artisan cheeses but are shocked to learn we have a cheese-making community here producing world-class cheeses,” she says.

Now, Ms. McChane unites those artisanal cheese aficionados—makers and mongers alike—for one day of gustatory exploration. In addition to sampling a clattering of cheeses, visitors can glean inspiration from recipe demos, cheese-pairing workshops, and roundtable discussions with cartoon mice. Additionally, local food trucks will dole out cheese-inspired dishes. The festival even includes a cheese-wrapping competition, wherein competitors skillfully enfold morsels with flavor-preserving Formaticum cheese paper. Ultimately, Ms. McChane hopes the festival will raise awareness of local cheese culture. “We have so many thriving dairy farms here,” says Ms. McChane. "And where there’s great milk, there’s great cheese."
