Cheese Days is a biennial celebration of cheese and the dairy industry, taking place in Monroe, Wisconsin. Established in 1914, the weekend long event typically occurs on the third weekend in September of even-numbered years in the historic downtown area known as “the Square”, except 2020. The festivities include carnival rides, a variety of local food, restaurant, craft, and club stands, live, traditional Swiss-Germanic music (including polkas and waltzes), and a culmination of it all into a two-hour parade on the Sunday afternoon. Over one hundred thousand people come for the festivities throughout the three-day event.

Since no Cheese Days is planned in 2020, the event was deferred to 2021. Another event will happen a year after that. There were cancellations in 1918, 1942 & 1944 besides this.
