A June 22 event promises a rare taste of more than 25 award-winning specialty cheeses, meats, wines and craft beers.
The second annual All-Star Blue Ribbon Tasting is slated from 6-9 p.m. inside the Wisconsin Expo Center at State Fair Park in West Allis. Attendees will taste dozens of specialty meats and cheeses, all awarded blue ribbons by State Fair judges, and paired with award-winning Wisconsin wines and beers.
A VIP reception at 5 p.m. will feature a meet and greet with Wisconsin cheesemakers, vintners, specialty meat processors and craft beer brewers.
Tickets are $35 in advance, or $40 at the door. A limited number of VIP tickets for the 5 p.m. reception are available at $50.
Included in all ticket prices are tastings of blue ribbon cheeses and meats, plus award-winning beers and wines.
Attendees will also enjoy viewing blue-ribbon winning junior artwork from the State Fair's 2012 Young People's Art Competition, and a silent auction for Blue Ribbon Baskets filled with award-winning meats, cheeses, beers and wines.
