Holey Cheese Festival

Queen Victoria Market will play host to the Holey Cheese Festival, a new event dedicated to all things cheese from 23 to 28 October 2018. Celebrating the very best in cheese from Victoria and beyond, market-goers will be able to indulge in everything from goat’s cheese to Gouda, Camembert to cheddar, and raclette to Roquefort.

Weave your way through Deli Lane next to the Market’s famous Dairy Hall to taste samples of the finest soft, hard, blue, white, fresh and aged rind cheese from a rotating line-up of Market traders and local producers.

Pick up some cheese to take home, then up the cheese ante with moreish bites from three ‘cheesy’ pop-ups: 400 Gradi will create an incredible 140-cheese pizza, Frencheese will serve their famous raclette fondue cheese and That’s Amore Cheese will balance savoury and sweet with their traditional cannolis.

And to quench your thirst, a bar will serve refreshing local brews from Coldstream Cider and Brick Lane Brewing Co, alongside wines from Mitchelton in Nagambie.

To round off the cheesy celebration, there will be cooking demonstrations throughout the week, roving entertainment on Tuesday and Thursday, and live music sets from Friday through to Sunday.
