2023 OFFICIAL PROFESSIONAL CONTEST RULES & GUIDELINES
Each year, we are honored to draw the best professional beer cheese makers in the country to compete on Main Street to be crowned Judge’s Choice and People’s Choice. With a prize package valued at over $5,000 (including a $1,000 check!) plus bragging rights, it’s no wonder we get the best. Click here for details about prizes.
If you would like to participate in our professional beer cheese competition, please review the official rules below and apply here with a $150 fully refundable deposit.
Requirements for being a professional vendor:
All labeling requirements for commercial beer cheese processors must be observed.
Beer Cheese Festival Guidelines provided by the Clark County Health Department must be observed.
As the name suggests, the winner of this prestigious award is chosen by the people. Every festival goer who samples beer cheese on Beer Cheese Boulevard is given one vote to cast for their favorite contestant. At the end of the day, the votes are tallied and the competitor with the most votes takes home the prize! Learn more.
It is recommended that you come prepared with 75-80 pounds of product for sampling and 200 pounds of product to sell to your fans (old and new)!
Pro tip: make your booth fun! People like fun almost as much as they like cheese. (Some examples include – decorate your booth, hold a raffle during the festival at your booth, ring a bell when you get a vote, give away promotional items, the sky’s the limit – be creative!)
