The world’s largest cheese board was here in Madison!
Madison decided to break a world record, and of course, the city decided to use cheese as a medium! This week, the Concert On The Square event wrapped up for the season, but before the night was done, the city unveiled the world’s largest cheese board! The board was 35 feet long and 7 feet wide and could fit 145 cheese varieties, totaling nearly 4,500 pounds. A huge, 2,000-pound cheddar wheel was the board’s centerpiece. Wisconsin’s cheeseboard topped the previous European record holder by over 1,000 pounds. After the event, nothing was wasted, as some of the cheese was donated to a Madison-area foodbank.Madison decided to break a world record, and of course, the city decided to use cheese as a medium!
