Stilton Cheese Rolling

Submitted by on March 20, 2011 – 12:43 amNo Comment

Most of us Road Trips Foodies prefer to eat cheese, but evidently the people of Cambridgeshire, England, United Kingdom, prefer their Stilton in motion.

At least they have a festival dedicated to the “ancient sport” of Cheese Rolling, set for May 2, 2011, in Stilton (near Peterborough) — and the main event is, ummm, a cheese-rolling competition. Oh yeah, there’s music, dance, local food and drink as well.

Here’s how the organizers describe the event: “Midway through the Twentieth Century, when the village had turned into rather a quiet place having been by-passed by the A1 and the inns and businesses had seen a big drop in their trade, a landlord of one of the pubs decided to revive an ancient tradition. Or so he told everyone! He could be seen rolling a Stilton Cheese along the road outside his pub. People came to stand and watch and eventually joined in. And so the sport began – again.”
