Artisan, specialty, and farmstead cheese makers from throughout the Northwest will converge in Portland Saturday October 3, 2009, to celebrate the return of The Wedge: Portland Celebrates Cheese Festival.
The farmer’s market-style event will be hosted by Green Dragon Bistro & Brewpub in Southeast Portland (928 SE 9th Ave.). Event hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
SE 9th Avenue will be blocked off between Belmont and Yamhill to provide space for up to 35 cheese makers. The festival highlights the recent strong placements by Northwest cheese makers in the 26th Annual American Cheese Society Competition, held August 7th in Austin, Texas.
More detailed information will be posted shortly at www.dairyfarmersor.com or www.oregoncheeseguild.org.
