The Canadian Cheese Rolling Festival

Got what it takes
to be a Cheese Rolling Champ?

Congrats to our 2014 Cheese Rolling Race winners, Jordan Lenham and Ximena Abresch; these courageous cheese lovers were really able to fall for Canadian Cheese! They came out to enjoy a full day of cheese-related events and each took home an 11-pound wheel of cheese, and two ski season passes each to Whistler Blackcomb.

Check out the Big Cheeses in previous Cheese Rolling races.
