Event organizers say that Saturday seminars and workshops tend to sell out early, so it might be a good idea to buy tickets sooner rather than later.
Proceeds from the festival go towards supporting local sustainable farmers and cheesemakers in California.
The schedule of speakers and their topics has been released:
Janet Fletcher - "What's Up with that Rind?" & "Cheese & Beer: Strategies for Harmony"
