Tickets are available online here, but act quickly because they are already 75 percent sold out.  Tickets cost $50 plus a $3.25 box office surcharge.

Seminars include “Sweet & Stinky,” “Beyond the Curd,” and “A Vertical Tasting.”

The Vermont Cheese Trail

If you can’t make the event, there is a do it yourself tour of the Vermont Cheese Trail, with 12 cheesemakers open to the public.

I’ll be in Ann Arbor that weekend, but this looks like a fun event to keep in mind for the future.
