The celebration of the Golden State’s bountiful cheese scene is back for its 14th year on March 27-29, 2020! While that may still seem far off in the distant future—what is 2020!? am I right?—the California Artisan Cheese Festival is closer than we may think, with tickets officially going on sale December 11, 2019 (this Wednesday!!).
The esteemed event is once again returning to Santa Rosa for three full days of tasting, exploring, and learning about California’s brightest artisan makers and their wares. Like years prior, the California Artisan Cheese Festival is a jam-packed event. This year's lineup includes producer tours; pairing and tasting seminars; and wine, beer, cider, and spirit samplings—all of which will occur alongside cheesemakers, industry experts, and celeb chefs.
According to a press release, the highlight of the weekend is Sunday's Artisan Cheese Tasting and Marketplace, where attendees can taste and buy their favorite cheeses and cheese-friendly artisan products—tickets for which go on sale December 11.
Tickets for the Bubbles and Brunch event also go on sale December 11, while tickets for the remaining events will go on sale January 1, 2020—a great way to kick off the new year!
