The Atlanta Grilled Cheese Festival is back full swing, after being postponed in 2021 for safety measures due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

On April 30, the Pinnacle Lot at Atlantic Station will fill with grilled cheese enthusiasts far and wide, to celebrate America's favorite sandwich.

This decadent event welcomes families, foodies, and grilled cheese connoisseurs (because if you're anything like me, you're just living life from one indulgent sandwich to the next.)

Over 25 restaurants and food trucks across Atlanta will be joining to serve their spin on the classic meal.

You can eat your way through the event, and cast your vote on who you think has best earned the title 'Best Grilled Cheese In Atlanta.'

Despite being a ticketed event, children under the age of 12 can join the festivities for free. For those over 21, general admission tickets include access to the 'Beer Garden', 'Bloody Mary Garden', and 'The Adult Game Zone.'

Tickets will include three sample tickets to get you started, and vendors will be selling quarter-size sample sandwiches that range from $1 to $4 so you can try them all!

There will also be live music to enjoy, and beer, wine, craft cocktails, and Bloody Mary flights available for purchase.
