    Attend Green County Cheese Days in Monroe, it's the longest running food festival in the Midwest!

Green County is famous for Swiss heritage and ethnic cuisine, colorful festivals, and tasty local brews perfectly paired with award-winning cheese. Home to 13 cheese factories and New Glarus Brewery you can literally taste your way through the county, and it’s delicious! Start with the National Historic Cheesemaking Center in Monroe for an interesting oral history of the cheesemaking industry. Visit New Glarus, known as America’s Little Switzerland for amazing food, architecture and culture. If you’re lucky, you’ll even catch authentic yodeling. Outdoor enthusiasts will love two trails and mile after mile of paved back roads for hiking and biking. Cruise past cows grazing in lush green fields, colorful barn quilts, and picturesque dairy farms dotting the horizon.
