FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: APRIL 12, 2013
Invitation to Media Launch in Ottawa
You are cordially invited to experience a taste of the upcoming Great Canadian Cheese Festival. In its third year, the expanded Cheese Festival returns to historic Crystal Palace in Picton, in the heart of Prince Edward County, on June 1 & 2, 2013. This year there will be additional exhibitors, vendors and new features in the adjacent Prince Edward Curling Club.
The Cheese Festival is the only event in Canada to bring together cheesemakers from coast-to-coast. Cheese lovers, foodies and culinary tourists can meet to learn, talk, taste and buy the best in artisan and farmstead cheese—as well as sample fine Ontario wine, craft beer and a cornucopia of artisan foods.
Join us at the Ottawa Media Launch to meet Festival founder and director Georgs Kolesnikovs who will provide a preview of this year’s Festival offerings. Also meet an artisan cheesemaker and other artisan producers as you sample their creations. You will enjoy sipping on wine from Casa-Dea Estates Winery from Prince Edward County and craft beer from Ontario’s Creemore Springs Brewery.
One of the leading attractions at this year’s Cheese Festival will be “A Taste of Ottawa“ pavilion featuring members of the Ottawa Specialty Food Association, small-batch food producers who make high quality and delicious creations ranging from cookies to unique smoked salt products.
New this year, long-time Festival partner Savvy Company will introduce “Savvy Sip ‘n Shop.“ Now, Festival-goers will have the convenience of ordering any Ontario wines and craft beers at the Festival for home delivery within a week.
