Cheesemakers, artisan food producers and small-batch wineries will provide samples and information. Those attending will pick up a ‘cheese pass’ which will allow one complimentary tasting from each exhibitor until 2pm. Products will also be available for purchase just in case you find a cheese you can’t live without! The daytime event is free of charge – donations of a non-perishable item for the Valley First ‘Feed the Valley’ program in support of the Armstrong Food Bank will be accepted. This year, not only will you learn all about the different cheeses but how to put together a charcuterie board that will leave your guests wanting more! Now working as a Cheese Expert and Consultant with the Dairy Farmers of Canada, David will surely educate and entertain with his great knowledge and profound passion for cheese. Think you are the ‘big cheese’? Don’t miss the ‘Cheese ball ‘and ‘Grilled Cheese’ competitions. Amateur cheese ball entries will be accepted from 10 – 11am with judging at 11am. The amateur grilled cheese competition will begin at 11am.
Advance tickets are $25; tickets at the door $35. Tickets are available at the Armstrong Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce office and Chocoliro Finest Chocolate, Armstrong mid-September.
