Cheers to Cheese Festival 2019
Sat, October 26 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm$15.00 – $35.00
Join us for our biggest event of the year! Cheers to Cheese Fest is a one-of-a-kind cheese and beer pairing festival featuring breweries, cheesemakers and purveyors from around the region. We’ve paired up eight of your favorite breweries with a creamery or cheese shop to create the best beer and cheese pairing imaginable. Pairing entries will be presented to a panel of judges to decide who created the best pairing. We’re excited to welcome as judges: Steph Rupp, a fellow cheese-lover who writes a cheese-focused blog called KC Cheeses, Kasim Hardaway, a Kansas City influencer who knows all things food and drink in the city and Dave Eckert, the Emmy-winner and former host of “Culinary Travels with Dave Eckert” on PBS.
Check out our teams!

Your ticket includes a sample of cheese and beer from each of our teams as well as samples from other local artisans featuring products that make perfect accompaniments on a cheese board! We’ll also have a Green Dirt Farm stand selling ooey gooey raclette plates, fresh cheese boards and merch! Or just dance the afternoon away to the beats of 77 Jefferson!
