CheeseTown Festival and Races Statement, March 13, 2020

With the mass cancellations the have occurred in the last 48 hours, we have received several enquiries about the CheeseTown Festival and Races. The event is scheduled for June 19-20th, more than three months in the future. As we have all seen, situations can change rapidly and unpredictably. It is much too early to make any decision regarding postponement or cancellation. The CheeseTown Team are busy as mice, preparing our normal CheeseMendous celebration, and will continue to make plans for Father’s Day weekend. We remind you that we WILL survive this, just as citizens of Pinconning and Linwood, Michigan, the United States, and the Earth have survived challenges in the past: by helping one another and working together for a common goal.
