Green County Cheese Days

1016 16th Avenue
Monroe, WI 53566

608-325-7771

In 1914, the concept of Cheese Days originated from the notion that if some little town in Illinois could have a festival commemorating sauerkraut, then a celebration based on cheese would be an even better idea.

A group of local businessmen planned the festivities in just nineteen days, driving a roadster through the city of Monroe to publicize the event. A hand-lettered sign attached to the vehicle proclaimed "First Cheese Day Committee 1914 - We Started Something"
