World Championship Cheese Contest

Even-numbered years bring WCMA’s World Championship Cheese Contest.  In 2016, for the first time in 28 years, a cheese from the United States took top honors.  A record 2,957 entries from 24 nations were judged by a team of 52 judges from 17 countries, and the event grows each time it is held.

Prepare for the next global event! The 2018 World Championship Cheese Contest will take place March 6-8 at the Monona Terrace Convention Center in Madison, Wisconsin.
