Holey Cheese Festival 2019

Five days of cheesy goodness at Queen Victoria Market.

For five days in October, the Queen Victoria Market will become the cheesiest place in Melbourne, all thanks to its second ever Holey Cheese Festival.

Running between Tuesday, October 22 and Sunday, October 27 (except on the Wednesday when the market is closed), this is the type fest that'll fill your stomach with all of things fromage — so if you're not fond of dairy, consider yourself warned.

A good cheese fest is all about the tastings, and this one promises samples of the state's best hard, soft, blue, white, fresh and aged rinds from both regular market traders (like Bill's Farm) and local producers. When you're not nabbing a bite of gouda, camembert or raclette, you can tuck into cheesy meals from food trucks, pop-up eateries, Melbourne chefs and, once again, the market's regulars.

Throw in live music, a wine bar, and cooking demonstrations — hopefully showing you how to whip up the cheesiest possible dishes at home — and you'll be having cheese dreams for days.
