**Updated, this festival may have been canceled.
Making a grilled cheese sandwich at home can be pretty easy and good for a quick dinner but it never compares to the complexity and flavor of a restaurant's gourmet grilled cheese. Now you can eat unlimited types of grilled cheese sandwiches at Austin's grilled cheese festival this winter. This is going to be the food festival of the season that you cannot miss out on.
For one day only on Saturday, February 8, 2020, from 12:30 PM to 8 PM, you can indulge in as many different types of grilled cheese as you could ever imagine. You'll get to sample grilled cheese bites of all different sizes and vote for your favorite. Large and small cheesy bites of garlic bread and gourmet cheese with all sorts of fillings and toppings sounds like a dream come true.
The event will have cheesy creations from the greatest local Austin chefs and participating restaurants. Austin is already the place to go for good grilled cheese, and now you can try all of them in one place!
Tickets will go on sale soon so you'll want to snag a pair ASAP. General Admission tickets (listed at $49 at their Houston Grilled Cheese Festival) include unlimited sampling of endless grilled cheese sandwiches plus an all-inclusive open bar. Their "Big Cheese" ticket option comes with all that plus early entry and access to a private bar and more. Get ready for a night of endless eating and drinking the best food and drinks around Austin!
You can sign up to get tickets first through their email link here.
The event is 21+ so you can leave the kiddos at home and enjoy endless sips and eats in peace. Prepare yourselves for the best culinary night of your life.
If you just can't wait until February for a mouth full of oozy cheese, you can head to the Austin Mac & Cheese Festival coming this November.
