In addition to all of the amazing cheeses, there will be some exciting activities during the Big Cheese Festival.

Jason Sobocinski’s Mini Cheese Classes

The Host of the Cooking Channel’s The Big Cheese, Jason Sobocinski, will be hosting various mini cheese classes throughout the show. The tentative topics for the classes will be: Chocolate and Cheese, Grilled Cheese 101, and Grilled Cheese and Wine. Check back for specific times as the festival gets closer.

Watch a Cheese Carver in Action

Sarah "The Cheese Lady" Kaufmann will be working on a cheese sculpture throughout the festival. Be sure to stop by from time to time to see her creation progress as well as trying some of the "scraps" that her carving produces.

Best of the Fest Awards

Be part of the excitement and help us vote for the first ever Best of the Fest Awards. We will be awarding prizes in seven categories based on voting by all Big Cheese festival attendees. Be sure to pick up your ballot at the show and enjoy tasting all the cheeses up for an award.

Music from a Cincinnati Tradition

A long time Cincinnati favorite, The Schnapps Band will be on hand providing music for the festival.
