“(Danniele Simon and I) decided to do it because everyone loves cheese,” said Amy Zahora, executive director of the Miami Valley Restaurant Association (MVRA). “We thought it would be a fun festival to kick off the season.”
Simon handles property management, marketing and events for Austin Landing.
The festival, hosted by Austin Landing in partnership with the MVRA, will feature over 15 food trucks serving cheesy concoctions. A beer garden, wine, live music and fireworks are also a part of the festivities.
Dayton native Alexis Gomez of “American Idol” will open the event with Nashville artists Josh Ross and Jason Michael Carroll co-headlining. The free concert is available thanks to the event’s main sponsor, Stella Artois.
Cheese Fest will be held from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Admission is free. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs.
