Bra – 15-18 September 2017
Friday to Sunday from 10am to midnight, Monday from 10am to 8pm. So much to do, learn and taste.

For its 11th edition, the layout of Cheese will look similar to past years: There will be free events taking place in the streets, squares and courtyards of Bra’s historic center, where you’ll find the Cheese Market, the Biodiversity House, the Great Hall of Cheese, the Enoteca, the Natural area (new this year, dedicated to cheese, cured meats, wine and bread made without commercial starter cultures, nitrites, nitrates and other artificial additives), the beer and food truck square, two cinemas hosting Cheese on the Screen, the Taste Library, the Taste Workshops, conference spaces, the main stage and other venues for hosting members of Slow Food both old and new.

The association is particularly thrilled to welcome you to its home in Via della Mendicità Istruita. Our long-standing headquarters are located here, at number 14, and for some months now this historic site has been officially ours, as on April 18 the contract was signed to acquire it. This is of enormous value to Slow Food. For the first time at Cheese, the association’s activities will be held right here in the Casa Slow Food, specifically in the beautiful street on which the Casa stands.

Another important section of the event will be held in Pollenzo, 6 kilometers from the center of Bra, where the University of Gastronomic Sciences, the Wine Bank and the Albergo dall’Agenzia are located. Beyond visiting the magnificent grounds, this is where you’ll be able to take part in the Dinner Dates and the Taste Workshops on wine.

Entry to Cheese is free, while tickets for the Dinner Dates and Taste Workshops will be on sale via the online store. The deadline for online booking is September 12, 2017. An email confirmation will be sent after booking. Bookings cannot be made by telephone. Any remaining spaces can be booked during Cheese at the Events Reception.
