If you love cheese, there is no better place to be on the second full weekend of September than Monroe, Wisconsin. Green County is home to more than a dozen cheese-making creameries who make more than 50 varieties of our state’s favorite food. Monroe is known as the Swiss Cheese Capital of the US. This is Wisconsin’s cheesemaking epicenter and every two years, they throw a party to celebrate. The whole town gets involved as Cheese Days takes over the square in the center of town and spreads out on the streets of Monroe to celebrate Wisconsin cheese.

For more information on Green County Cheese Days, check out their website or head over to their Facebook page.

The festival takes place September 14-16, 2018 in the streets of Monroe, approximately 40 miles south of Madison near the Illinois border.
