Last Chance to Attend Annual SF Cheese Fest Approaches

Tuesday, September 13th, 2016

If you haven’t yet gotten tickets to the second annual San Francisco Cheese Fest this Saturday, Sept. 17th–you’re down to the wire. Those in attendance will not only have key chances to network, but to sample dozens of California’s finest cheeses alongside local makers of cured meats, pickles, jams, sauces, craft beer and wine, as well as 24 Guild member cheese companies.

Anthea Stolz, Executive Director, California Artisan Cheese Guild

“The mission of SF Cheese Fest is to celebrate the hard work, craftsmanship, and unique character of California cheese and cheesemakers,” California Artisan Cheese Guild (CACG) Executive Director, Anthea Stolz, stated in a press release. “Guests are invited to participate in preservation by rubbing elbows with real cheesemakers, jam and charcuterie crafters, and meet cheesemongers, goat wranglers, cow milkers, and sheep breeders. The evening will overflow with flavor and handmade foods that preserve a tradition rooted in the Bay Area culture.”

A now 10-year-old nonprofit dedicated to the education, support, and preservation of California’s artisan cheesemaking community, the CACG’s event includes food and beverage sampling, music, and dancing, all for $84 per guest.

Under the theme “Preservation: Salt, Sugar, Culture and Tradition,” the historic 1909 landmark building and venue, Social Hall SF, 1270 Sutter Street, in San Francisco, California, will be alight with jazz music and dancing to swing band, The Hot Baked Goods,

Amongst the cheese companies in attendance will be pioneers and artisans of the industry, including:

  • Laura Chenel’s
  • Marin French Cheese
  • Point Reyes Farmstead
  • Sierra Cheese
  • Bleating Heart
