Holey Cheese Festival

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 new Holey Cheese Festival.

Running on Tuesday, October 23 and again between Thursday, October 25 and Sunday, October 28, 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 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 bar serving up wine, beer and cider, 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.
