Back in 1914, the concept of Cheese Days originated from the notion that if some little town in Illinois could have a festival commemorating sauerkraut, then a celebration based on cheese would be an even better idea.

We even have a Cheese Days mascot named Wedgie...no I'm not kidding!
Every small community in Wisconsin has their festival. This is one of the things that this Illinois girl loves about WI...(not to mention the Packers, sorry Bears fans). If Byron can have the Turkey Testicle Festival then we can celebrate cheese and all things swiss.
I think the lyrics to "The Cheese Days" song sum it up best!
Come to Cheese Days in Monroe.
That’s the place for you to go.

And a big parade for you.
And we know you will be pleased.
When you taste Green County Cheese.
