On the first weekend of April, Victory Park in East Village will transform into a haven for cheese lovers with a festival showcasing the very best in artisan cheese and wine from over 25 independent retailers.

The one-off event will feature a range of delicious wine and cheese from around the world, as well as indulgent cheese boards, condiments and chutneys along with tempting wine and cider. Additionally, there will be a selection of irresistible street food, including cheese Arancini, cheesy burgers and the skiers’ favourite alpine dish, raclette. Everyone knows that cheese goes best with wine, so East Village has ensured that the finest wine producers will be at the festival. Visitors will be able to finish off the day with several opportunities to try some delicious chocolate treats.

There will also be a selection of workshops and talks taking place throughout both days where visitors will find the perfect cheese and wine pairing.

This is a free non-ticketed event on Saturday April 1 from 12-6pm and Sunday April 2 from 11am-4pm.
