“The Festival brings together artisan cheesemakers, farmers, educators, authors, chefs, brewers, and winemakers from all over California for three days of cheese tasting, education, and celebration,” stated the collective.

Tickets to most of the Festival are still available, and the Artisan Cheese Festival donates 10% of all ticket proceeds to Sonoma Land Trust, Marin Agricultural Land Trust, Petaluma Future Farmers of America, California Artisan Cheese Guild, and Redwood Empire Food Bank. All events are priced separately and the Sheraton Sonoma County–Petaluma is offering special discounted rates on rooms for festival-goers.
