California Artisan Cheese Festival is a nonprofit organization with the mission to educate people who want to learn more about artisan cheese, support the artisan cheesemaking community and its sustainability, and celebrate and enjoy the creations of the artisan cheesemakers.
There will be farm and producer tours, seminars and pairing demos, and an artisan cheese marketplace as well as tastings in different locations throughout Sonoma County.
Through its educational offerings, the festival also helps consumers better understand artisan cheeses and their advantages over non-artisan cheeses. It also shows the wide variety of artisan cheeses available and the flexibility with which they can be used. The festival’s marketplace event on Sunday gives the cheesemakers an excellent opportunity to showcase and sell their cheeses.
