The Amish Country Cheese Festival
Three Big Days every Labor Day Weekend
Arthur invites tens of thousands of people to town every year over Labor Day weekend to celebrate its heritage and to just have fun.
A whole downtown full of Food, games, crafts, races,
entertainment, and of course, lots of CHEESE!
We cut up two big 300 pound wheels of fresh cheddar and serve it free with crackers to thousands of guests everyday of the event. Add a corn dog or walleye sandwich or something else from the many vendors for a complete and "healthy" festival meal.
Enter the Cheese Curling contest or try out as a Cheese Eating Champion, listen to some stage entertainment, or shop the bargains all the Arthur merchants put out on the street.
Lots for the kids to do in Artie's Party Zone with games , inflateables, kids rides, clowns, and special stage entertainment for the young at heart. And lots of other things to enjoy for the whole family.
Again, this is another Arthur event that deserves its own website. Visit the www.ArthurCheeseFestival.com website to find out the detailed schedule of the weekend, vendor and Rat Race applications and a whole lot more details.
