When you purchase a ticket you benefit…
The Cheese and Meat Festival proudly benefits the Washington State Cheesemakers Association (WASCA). WASCA works to support Washington cheese and cheesemakers through education, promotion, and collaboration amongst its members and partners.
In the past decade, there has been substantial growth in the production of high-quality cheeses in Washington State. Today, Washington cheesemakers offer an enormous variety and diversity. Over eighty licensed cheesemakers in the state are offering farmstead or off the farm, artisan or conventional, small batch or large batch, original or traditional style cheeses from cow, goat, and sheep’s milk. There is certainly no shortage of choices.
