  2. Where will all the Cheese-tastic excitement take place? The Freight Depot Building-110 Central Avenue SW, Atlanta, GA 30303

  3. Is this the same thing as the Atlanta Cheese Festival? It sure is! We changed our name because we're getting too big to fit just Atlanta. This year, we expanded to Cincinnati and Houston! (www.thecheesefest.com/events)

  4. Is there a place to put my vehicular transport? There are multiple parking garages in the area. Parking locations will be announced once tickets go on sale.

  5. Will I have to sign my life away to pay for parking? Parking is off site and you will be required to pay fees published at each parking deck location.

What kind of cheesy fun comes with the General Admission ticket? General Admission ticket includes entry into the Atlanta Cheese Festival, access to the Meltdown/Macdown competition, meeting with cheese producers and tasting their products, live music, 1 drink ticket, and tons of tasty fun. Once you get in, you can taste all the cheese you can handle.

  8. What are the perks of a VIP ticket? VIP includes everything in the General Admission ticket and early 4:00pm entry to the festival events, VIP only pairing event, 2 drink tickets and a Swag bag. This year, we will have wine, beer, and bourbon pairing classes and they have staggered start times so you can go to one or all three!

  9. Will you sell out? We definitely will! The Freight Depot has a max capacity and we cannot oversell tickets. That means, act fast!
