Ellsworth’s Cheese Curd Festival celebrates the town’s designation as the Cheese Curd Capital of Wisconsin! It’s their very own Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery that creates the tasty white morsels, which have earned worldwide acclaim.
Taking place in June, admission to the festival is free. Fri. 4-10 p.m., and Sat. 10 a.m.-10 p.m. It’s part food and beer festival, part music event with several guided tasting experiences offering the opportunity to learn and engage with the crafters, cooks, and makers of the festival’s starring foods: Cheese, craft beer, wine, hard ciders, real dairy ice-cream, and authentic Sconnie BBQ. All with a heaping helping of music on the side. Advance tickets are available for some events. Visit their website for more information.
When you’ve had your fill of food, sit back and enjoy an eclectic mix of music or browse the festival market or car show. The cheese curd eating contest is great fun and keeps spectators on the edge of their seats!
Insider Tip: Wear your stretchy pants! You’ll want to take in the wide variety of creative cheese curd dishes, fresh hand-battered, deep-fried cheese curds and dipping sauces, and an exclusive top-secret dessert curd that rivals the mini donut!
