The Gastronomic Meeting Point For Excellence
Asturias – Paraíso Natural International Cheese Festival 2021 is the most important gastronomic event of the year, at an international level, that will feature cheese as the main protagonist and will be held in Oviedo on November 3 – 6 of 2021.
The first edition of the International Cheese Festival took place in Donostia/San Sebastian in 2016, where all expectations were exceeded by having around 10.000 attendes, more than 2.500 acredited professionals and about 3.500 cheeses that took place in the World Cheese Awards 2016.
Through this unique gastronomic event, Oviedo provides the opportunity for professionals and general public, both locals and foreigners, to get to know first-hand cheeses elaborated in Asturias as well as to take part in various high-quality international cultural experiences such as tastings, product markets or scientific and gastronnomic presentations. This will contribute to the social harmony and will promote the work of artisan producers.
Lead by The Cheese Institute, different synergies have joined to carry out the organization of this large-scale festival, thanks to the support of the Council of Government of the Principality of Asturias and the City Council of Oviedo.
The World Cheese Awards organization will be at the festival, awarding the best cheese of the world 2021.
The festival will have spaces to initiate business relationships between producers and buyers and will count on the participation of international producers of protected designation of origin (PDO), protected geographical indication (PGI), spanish cheeses, internationalyy recognized chefs, universities and cheese and gastronomy companies.
Asturias – Paraíso Natural International Cheese Festival is an open festival, because we want citizenship to be part of it, participating in the different planned activities.
