April 9, 2017, Sunday - Cheesetopia at Aria

Time: 12 PM - 4 PM

Location: Aria, 105 North First Street


On Sunday, April 9, Cheesetopia comes to Minneapolis. This traveling cheese festival brings the best artisan and farmstead cheeses to the heart of a different American city every year. Attendees meet, greet, sample and purchase cheese and artisan foods from 40 of the best producers in the Midwest.

Hosted in Aria, one of the most beautiful structures in the Minneapolis Warehouse Historic District, this event compliments the structure's soaring original brick walls, cavernous ceilings, crystal chandeliers, whimsical artwork, and decadent furniture. Aria is indeed the perfect backdrop to Cheesetopia, one of the largest gatherings of artisan cheesemakers in the United States.

General Admission and VIP Tickets go on sale to the public at 8 am on March 1.

Tickets: $75, includes all cheese samples, butlered appetizers and open bar with wine, beer & soda. VIP Tickets: $125, includes access to four Balcony Lounges.
