Meat and cheese go together like bread and butter (which, also tastes good with meat and cheese), so it just seems right to have a festival devoted to the perfect pairing. The second annual Vancouver Cheese and Meat festival is approaching quickly and tickets were quick to sell out.

However, there is a rumour that some extra passes will be made available to those on the waitlist for evening tickets. Additionally, if you post on the Event Facebook page, there’s a good chance that people may be willing to sell their tickets if they’re no longer able to go to the actual event. If all else fails, you can start planning your trip back to Vancouver for the 2018 Cheese & Meat Festival!

This year, The Cheese and Meat Festival will be hosted in Vancouver on September 30 at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre in Yaletown (181 Roundhouse Mews).

The festival will feature local and international cheeses and meats with an assortment of condiments, including pickles, nuts, bread, and more. Guests will also be able to enjoy the meaty and cheesy delicacies paired with a variety of beverages, including wine, beer, and cider.
