This will be our 3rd year of OOZEFEST, our premiere cheese festival in Southern California, and it all be more mouthwatering than ever. We will be bringing together some of the best food geniuses around to have them create newsworthy gnashes. These exclusive items will be seen by the nation and tasted by the individuals who are looking to grab a real taste of the food that makes you say "WOW".
The event will be a one day festival that will take place outdoors at Mainplace Mall. The event will have two separate sessions which will be 3:00pm - 6:30pm and 7:30p - 11:00pm on Saturday October 14th, 2017. Tentatively, We will also be hosting a special media preview crawl with a selected handful of vendors. We will be hosting this event at the Southeast corner of Main Place Mall in Santa Ana, Ca.
