Inspired by the rising consumer demand for cheese and gourmet dairy products, Chicago decided to create an official cheese festival titled 'Cheesetopia.' This surreal event is set to feature a variety of gourmet cheeses, snacks and wines honoring the Midwest’s artisan and farmstead products.
Those who attend the event can expect to "personally meet, greet, sample and purchase cheese from 50 of the best artisan cheesemakers and food producers around the Great Lakes Region."
The official cheese festival will take place at Chicago's Skyline Loft at Bridgeport Arts Center on Sunday, April 10, 2016. This historical location pays tribute to the city, while providing guests with a dazzling skyline view as they consume as much cheese and wine as they can.
