OREGON CHEESE FESTIVAL: no in-person event in 2020, save the date for March 13 & 14, 2021

As part of the policies for reopening Oregon set forth by the Governor’s office, large scale events in Oregon have been canceled through this fall. As such, we are unable to hold the Oregon Cheese Festival in 2020 as we had hoped.

Please mark your calendars for March 13 & 14, 2021 for the Oregon Cheese Festival at Rogue Creamery in Central Point. 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.

In the meantime, we will continue to monitor the situation and if anything changes over the summer that would allow us to do an event in the fall, we will do so – and you’ll be the first to know.

For now, you can still 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.

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
David Gremmels, Rogue Creamery
