A few notes:

All ticket sales are final. Tickets are transferable but not refundable, so please plan accordingly. If someone else is coming in your place, please let us know ahead of time so we can adjust the Will Call list (otherwise they will be standing there all sad they're not on the list).

Sales tax will be added to all ticket sales because, well, we have to.   

Lines and cheese-y etiquette. There will be lines, friends. 40-ish makers and artisans plus several bars for a large group simply means there's going to some wait time. Many of these cheesemakers have traveled quite a distance, and they want to engage with you, dear cheese lover. So grab a refreshing beverage and a pal, swap cheese tales, and before you know it, it's your turn!

Please plan to form lines at individual booths, that way if a guest and a cheesemaker are chattin' up a storm, you can pop over to another booth and come back later. 

Also, if you're waiting patiently to chat with a maker and someone wants to just grab a nibble from the table, let 'em. That's one less person in line, right? Likewise, if there's a line to chat with a maker and you just want a cheese sample, politely ask the folks in line if you may reach in for just a second to put a toothpick in a tiny wedge of cheese and move on.
