Green County Cheese Days

Bookmark and Share
Location Monroe
Dates September 19, 2014 - September 21, 2014
Description: Back in 1914, the concept of Cheese Days originated from the notion that if some little town in Illinois could have a festival commemorating sauerkraut, then a celebration based on cheese would be an even better idea.

A group of local businessmen planned the festivities in just nine days, driving a roadster through the city of Monroe to publicize the event. A hand-lettered sign attached to the vehicle proclaimed "FIRST CHEESE DAY COMMITTEE 1914 - WE STARTED SOMETHING!"

And did they ever.

Today we invite you to take part in Cheese Days - where Old World tradition has generated an out-of-this-world celebration.
