Announcing the first ever... National Cheddar Day!

All cheese is not created equal. And at Tillamook we take our cheese very seriously. That is why we have set out to honor the love of cheddar cheese nationwide with the first-ever celebration of a National Cheddar Day.

After over a century spent perfecting our award-winning cheddar recipe, we at Tillamook have decided to dedicate our 110th birthday, and every birthday thereafter, to be the National Cheddar Day holiday. It’s time we give cheddar its due. Its day. A national celebration. We hope you agree and join our farmer families and cheese lovers everywhere in enjoying this truly special day from coast-to-coast, for years to come.

Here’s how to celebrate!

If local to the Pacific Northwest, or traveling through, join us at the Tillamook Creamery from 8am-6pm on February 13th for a fun birthday celebration. You’ll be able to get a first taste of our brand new (not yet released!) Birthday Cake Ice Cream, Cheeseboard snacks, and other fun goodies.

Can’t make it to the Creamery? That’s ok! We’ll be giving away a literal ton of cheddar cheese for FREE (yes, you read that right!). The first 1,000 fans to use the hashtag #NationalCheddarDay, the cheese emoji (🧀) on Twitter in the following cities: Los Angeles, Denver, Dallas, Washington DC, and Atlanta will get a 2lb loaf of golden medium cheddar delivered within 2 hours.

Finally, check out our Where to Buy tool to find Tillamook Cheddar near you and stock up before the big day. Thank you for celebrating this new holiday with us in the name of delicious cheddar cheese!
