The 2014 Wedge Cheese Festival

Saturday, October 25th, 2014 from 1-5pm in Escondido

The Escondido Downtown Business Association presents The Wedge 2014! 

Think of it as a “Taste of Grand Avenue” with a cheese flair.

The $35 Wedge Tasting Passport gets you access to 25+ cheese and restaurant tasting stops, a commemorative glass and entry into our Grand Raffle.  The price increases to $45 after 10/18/14 so be sure to buy your tickets now! These tasting stops consist of our local downtown businesses hosting fine cheeses and a diverse selection of craft beers and boutique wines as well as local restaurants offering samples of their delicious creations!

Your passport includes all the cheese and restaurant nibbles and your choice of 10 beer and/or wine pairings. Check out our growing list of restaurants, cheeses, breweries and wineries as well as last year’s participants.

In between tastings and after, join us for live music from the award winning band, Talk Like June!

Tickets are limited, and advance pricing is available so we encourage you to buy online early.
