SF Cheese Fest is Two Days of Sheer Cheese Heaven

Friday, May 4th, 2018

Are you an avid cheese lover but never thought you had a spot to celebrate? Search no more! California Artisan Cheese Guild (CACG) announced its Fourth Annual SF Cheese Fest, taking place September 15th and 16th. Due to popular demand, the festival has announced plans to expand its format—growing to a two-day-long event.

SF Cheese Fest

This year’s theme is “4 x 4,” a playful name celebrating the fourth anniversary of the festival and the inclusion of cheeses made with all four types of milk (cow, goat, sheep, and water buffalo).

Anthea Stolz, Executive Director, California Artisan Cheese Guild “The SF Cheese Fest’s theme of '4 x 4' promises a fun and delicious weekend of tasting and learning about the differences that types of milk can have on a cheese’s style,” said CACG Executive Director Anthea Stolz. “We are very excited to partner with The Cheese School of San Francisco this year to expand our offerings to include hands-on educational seminars on Sunday.”

Events include Saturday night’s popular walk-around tasting event, the Cheesemaker Celebration, held at the historic Social Hall SF, and a brand new series of Sunday Seminars with The Cheese School of San Francisco. At Saturday night’s Cheesemaker Celebration, guests have the chance to chat with over 20 Guild-member cheesemakers from across California, sampling a variety of cheeses the state has to offer. While sipping local beer, cider and wine, and sampling charcuterie, guests will also enjoy live music.
