Frankenmuth Cheese Haus welcomes you to Cheese Haus Palooza!
A fun filled day for those who love all things cheese.

Free Family Fun!

Explore a variety of cheese-related vendors offering complimentary samples! Witness cheesy craftsmanship firsthand as we unveil a magnificent 600-pound cheese tower of our newest cheese named by YOU, FrankenCheddar!
