Madame Fromage’s Cheese Ball 2016

Madame Fromage Cheese Ball Invite

Lovely readers, I am writing to invite you to my 3rd semi-annual Cheese Ball in Philadelphia on October 30, 2016. We’ll be back at Ruba Club, a Russian social hall in the Northern Liberties neighborhood, for a Sunday evening of rennet and revelry. If you attended the last Cheese Ball, you know it was crowded! This time around, we’ll have much more space with 2 floors: on the first floor, you’ll find the city’s largest cheese board along with a cash bar; upstairs, you’ll find a local-cheese sampling salon from 6-8 p.m., followed by a dairy disco with the tuba-centric Disco Hootenanny. Yes, costumes are encouraged — it is Mischief Night after all.

Tickets ($20) are limited, with all proceeds to benefit the Pennsylvania Cheese Guild. Grab your tix at the link below. Your support will fund cheesemaker education, and, by attending, you’ll get to taste the hunks of your dreams, join a wildly welcoming cheese scene, and maybe even dance with a cheesemonger.

When: Sunday, October 30, 2016, 6-10 p.m.

Where: Ruba Club, 416 Green Street, Philadelphia 19123

How: Tickets ($20) (advance purchase recommended)

Bring: A contribution to the city’s largest cheese board! A hunk of cheese, a condiment, a loaf of bread, or crackers…


For all inquiries, please email Ready for a little retrospective?

    Is the Cheese Ball open to the public or is it a private gathering.
