Cheese Days: Oldest food fest in the Midwest set for Sept. 14-16

Aug. 23, 2012 | 0 comments

With an event dating back to 1914, many time-honored traditions like cheese tasting, live music, dairy farm tours, Swiss entertainment, and parades will be part of the Green County Cheese Days festivities in downtown Monroe on Sept. 14-16.

In addition to favorites that festival goers have come to expect like cheese tasting, live music, dairy farm tours, Swiss entertainment, and parades, this year's guests will enjoy a variety of new activities and entertainment options.

Watch Sarah the Cheese Lady carve a sculpture from a giant block of Cheddar cheese, as well as some smaller carvings from locally made cheese exclusive to Green County, like Gruyere from Emmi Roth Kase. Sarah the Cheese Lady appears at the festival courtesy of Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.

Sara Hill, Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board's culinary manager of cheese education, will be teaming up with local cheesemakers for two new sessions in the Colony Brands Hospitality Tent on Saturday.

"Cheese 101" will give audience members the chance to taste and compare different styles from the eight families of Wisconsin cheese.

During "Artisan Cheeses & Pairing Partners", participants will discover how to pair artisan cheeses with other tastes - like fruits, nuts and chocolates - to bring out their best flavors.

A number of new bands are on the schedule, including polka dancing with Barefoot Becky on Friday afternoon, and the Brewhaus Polka Kings Saturday afternoon. The Friday evening street dance features Boogie and the Yo-yo'z, the self-proclaimed "hottest party band in Wisconsin - and maybe Iowa too."

On Saturday night, the Matriarchs will bring some foot-stomping fun to the Hospitality Tent stage with traditional and contemporary folk songs. Midlife Crisis entertains Saturday evening on the Main Stage with oldies, mash-ups, polka medleys and non-stop party tunes.

Monroe Public Library will host a satellite location for "Library on the Square" over the weekend with a "Live from Cheese Days" webcam and internet access for posting social media updates. They'll also offer genealogy resources for visitors researching their ancestral roots - Swiss or otherwise.

Race fans should stop in at the Nascar-themed Colony Brands Tent, sponsored through RaceTeamGear.com website. Throughout the weekend, the tent will feature race cars and the public can meet drivers Nathan Haseleu, Jeremy Miller and Keith Steele for autographs and photos.

Also new this year is the Cheese Days mascot, "Wedgie," with his red Swiss beanie and cheesy dance moves.
