California Artisan Cheese Festival Food

Starting with the first festival in 2007, the California Artisan Cheese Festival is the first-ever weekend-long celebration and exploration of handcrafted cheeses, foods, wines and beers from California and beyond. Attendees have met more than a dozen international award-winning cheese makers and learned how to taste, buy, serve and enjoy distinctive artisan cheeses from the experts. The educational seminars and tastings are led by cheese experts, cheese makers, chefs and fromagiers from across the country, and virtually every session involved tastings and/or pairings of artisan cheeses. The festival features a wide variety of artisan cheeses from California and beyond, together with their artisan bread, food, wine and beer complements.

Festival has a children/youth component.
