Cheese Festival
Bra, Italy

If you weren’t already planning a trip to Italy’s Piedmont region, it might be time to start.

The Wedge
Portland, Ore.

Farmers’ market–style cheese festivals mean one thing: plenty of cheese to sample and even more to take home. Tasting tickets are available for purchase online or at the door, so there’s no excuse to miss out on Portland’s cheesiest event.
