Awaken Your Tastebuds At The Cheese And Meat Festival That Will Arrive In Washington This Spring
It’s no secret that we love our food festivals here in Washington. And with so much good produce, seafood, grains, and meat being grown and raised here, it’s really no wonder Washingtonians are such foodies. Mark your calendars for April 25th, 2020, because the Seattle Cheese and Meat Festival is something you won’t want to miss.
The Cheese and Meat Festival is held annually in Victoria, Vancouver, and Seattle.
The purpose is to showcase the products you'd see on a charcuterie board (mainly meats, cheeses, and spreads) since artisan shops and products have increased in popularity in the Pacific Northwest.
Seattle's festival meets at McCaw Hall, which is located on the grounds of Seattle Center.
Not only is the venue beautiful, but you'll have plenty of space to walk around and enjoy your samples.
Here's how it works: Upon entry, you'll show your ticket and be given a wine glass and a charcuterie board.
From there, you can walk around and sample from the food and beverage vendors for no additional fees.
The festival is broken down into tasting sessions, so your ticket price will depend on when you want to taste and what you'd like to see when you're there.
For $65, you can get a ticket to tasting session 1 (a 12 PM start) or session 2 (a 3 PM start). Again, for that price, all your tastes and sips are included.
If you'd like a more extensive experience, you can pay $155 for a Super Pass.
This gives you access to all tasting sessions as well as both seminars that are offered during the festival, if you'd like to attend. You can also purchase a ticket for just the seminars for $35 each.
Prepare to try meats, cheeses, breads, wine, and other goodies from local vendors and worldwide creators alike.
Some of Seattle's past vendors have included Cascadia Creamery, Salumi, Salt Blade, and Samish Bay Cheese.
The Cheese and Meat Festival is a must-see for foodies.
We can't wait to see who's there this year.
