To our community of cheese lovers in Oregon and beyond:

In line with the Oregon Cheese Guild and Rogue Creamery’s commitment to providing a safe, healthy, and positive impact in our community and environment, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the postponement of the 2020 Oregon Cheese Festival until we are safely and legally able to hold it again.

In the meantime, there are a number of ways to get your cheese fix AND support Oregon’s food producers. Go to https://oregoncheeseguild.org/buy-oregon-cheese/ for all the ways to SuppORt Local cheesemakers.

Please mark your calendars for March 13 & 14, 2021. We will continue to monitor the situation and if there’s a way to put on a Festival in the fall we will do so! Tickets already purchased will be automatically honored on the future dates. Anyone unable to attend on those dates can request a refund by responding to the email issued March 11 by the ticketing website, Bold Type Tickets.

It is our hope that you will join us the next time we celebrate cheese from across the state and beyond. To learn more about the rescheduled festival, refer back here.

Thank you for your continued support, and for the enthusiasm you share for the artisan products that make our state so special.

With gratitude,
Katie Bray, Executive Director, Oregon Cheese Guild
