Oldest food festival in the Midwest! On the Historic Courthouse Square in downtown Monroe since 1914.  A celebration of cheesemaking, dairy farming, and the Swiss traditions that are deeply rooted in the heritage of this region. Get ready to yodel, polka, and eat cheese by the truckload.

Highlights of the weekend include:  yodeling and alphorns, old time copper kettle cheesemaking, fun festival foods (deep fried cheese curds, cheesecake on a stick, gourmet grilled cheese), live music on three stages, and Wisconsin's only parade led by a herd of Brown Swiss cows.

Plus - Beer Garden, craft and commercial vendors, street entertainers, vintage tractor show, children’s parade, Cheese Days Chase, Family Farm Adventure Tent, Kid's Street and more.
