Big Block of Cheese Day -- Larimer County
Fort Collins District Office: 1220 S. College Ave., Fort Collins, CO 80525
Rep. Jared Polis, D-Boulder, will host a “Big Block of Cheese Day” on Friday, Nov. 17 in Fort Collins. “Big Block of Cheese Day” is essentially open office hours with the congressman. Appointments are now full, but community members can sign up for a wait list or simply walk-in to meet with staff or possibly Polis, if time allows.
“Big Block of Cheese Day” is based on a tradition started by President Andrew Jackson in 1837 when he received a massive, 1,400 lb. wheel of cheese as a gift and couldn’t eat it all by himself! As the folklore goes, Jackson pondered, “Why not invite the American public to the White House and share the cheese?” Jackson then hosted the original “Big Block of Cheese Day” for thousands of Americans to visit the White House and meet with top-level officials, while enjoying cheese together!
