Blue Bee Cider; 1320 Summit Avenue Richmond, VA 23230

Attendance limit: 240

Join us to celebrate Southern Cheesemakers!! Raise your glass with us on Thursday, August 1 at Blue Bee Cider in Richmond.

The event will highlight cheeses made by members of the Southern Cheese Guild and other delicious foods made in the South by artisans, beautifully arranged by Cardinal State Butchers and Truckle Cheesemongers. You will be able to sample delicious cheeses and help us celebrate the winner of The Daphne Zepos Teaching Award.

First-come, first-served. Cider, kombucha, and frosé! So, run tell your friends!

About Us:

The event is co-hosted by three wonderful educational non-profits supporting artisan cheesemaking.

The Daphne Zepos Teaching Award (DZTA) is committed to growing a league of cheese educators to move our industry ever forward.

The Southern Cheese Guild celebrates the culinary, cultural and economic contributions of small-scale cheese producers in the American South.

The Oldways Cheese Coalition brings a research-based approach to promoting real cheese as a nutritious food that is part of healthy delicious diets. We love raw milk cheese!

All cash from ticket sales after fees will be donated equally between the Daphne Zepos Teaching Endowment - a 501(c)3 that funds the annual scholarship - the Southern Cheese Guild to promote artisan cheesemakers, and the Oldways Cheese Coalition to run its educational campaigns in support of traditional cheesemaking practices.
