  • Cheese Topia: Bringing Artisan Cheese to the Heart of the City with Jeanne Carpenter

    Start: Sunday, 04/12/2015, 12:00 PM
    End: Sunday, 04/12/2015, 4:00 PM

    It's official: you can book April 12, 2015, on your calendars for the First Annual CheeseTopia, a new one-day cheese festival Jeanne Carpenter will be planning each year for the next three years. Year one will be at the Pritzlaff Building, a renovated warehouse in the Historic Third Ward of downtown Milwaukee, Year two

    CheeseTopia aims to bring the best of Midwest artisan and farmstead cheese to the heart of the city by offering up to 700 attendees the opportunity to sample and purchase cheese from more than 50 cheesemakers from the Great Lakes Region, including Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa and Michigan. The festival will be open from Noon to 4 p.m. on a Sunday and offer a fun open marketplace atmosphere with cheese samples and a cash bar.

    Two large edible displays of cheese will be built to compliment the hundreds of cheese samples available from cheesemakers. While many artisans will sell their products, farmer's market style, those who don't will have an opportunity to have them available for purchase from Larry's Market, which will set up a beautiful table of cheeses for sale at the event.

    In addition, several breakout seminars will take place in separate meeting spaces inside the Pritzlaff Building, which was constructed in 1875 and just recently renovated. More than 20,000 square feet of floor space will be filled with cheesemaker tables surrounded by carved wooden beams, industrial age columns, Victorian era arched windows and gritty cream city brick. This is a building you truly need to step inside and appreciate.

    Tickets will likely cost $25 and will go on sale after the first of the year. As always, faithful members of Wisconsin Cheese Originals will have first chance to purchase entry and sign up for seminars.
