Strong, bold and a bit nutty, the Canadian Cheese Rolling Festival in Whistler is sure to be a superbly fun time! A huge wheel of cheese, 11 pounds to be exact is thrown down a hill and the contestants chase after it in hopes of winning the title of Cheese Rolling Champion! The winner takes the cheese and two ski-season passes to Whistler Blackcomb.

Of course, that’s just the beginning! The whole festival includes family activities, games, tastings and lots of fresh ways to enjoy Canadian cheese.

The English have been doing this for centuries on Cooper's Hill in Gloucestershire, and now Canada has made Cheese Rolling a tradition as well. We host tasting seminars, bring in cheese experts, run games and of course, we lay out a beautiful spread of delicious Canadian cheeses to taste and buy. It’s a whole festival of cheesy delights,
