Arthur's Amish Country

Cheese Festival

Cheese Eating Nationals

Like to eat cheese? Didn't get enough during the cheese giveaways earlier and still are hungry?

Pull up a chair in the Main Cheese Tent and register in your age class (12yrs and under youth division and 13+ adult division) in our Cheese Eating National Championship.

We'll provide each contestant a one pound block of Colby cheese, a bottle of water as a chaser, and start the clock. The first to eat it all or the one with the most eaten in 5 minutes will be crowned the champion. Event is limited to the first 36 contestants in each age class . A large chanting crowd usually forms at the Cheese Tent to cheer on their favorites.

More Family fun for the whole weekend. That's what a visit to the Arthur Amish Country Cheese Festival is about!

 Come join us and have fun!
