If there is one thing most North Carolina residents can agree on, it's the love we have for cheese. There's a festival coming in 2020 that will make all your cheese dreams come true. Raleigh Grilled Cheese Festival will be taking over in May and this is one fest you do not want to miss.
On Saturday, May 2, 2020, you'll be able to immerse yourself completely in grilled cheese sammies. The festival will feature many samples of different types of sandwiches; you'll be full for the entire day.
Aside from sandwiches, there will be games, music, a Bloody Mary garden and even a mimosa bar. What more could you ask for, honestly?
There are general admission and VIP tickets available. When you buy a GA ticket, you'll receive unlimited grilled cheese samples, three drink tickets, two voting tickets for the best-grilled cheese, one raffle ticket, games and activities. These tickets start at $35.
For VIP, you'll get everything GA receives and early entry for one hour, five drink tickets and one extra raffle ticket. These tickets start at $50. The event is only for those 21 and up.
The event lasts from 1:00 p.m. (12:00 p.m. if you are VIP) and goes until 5:00 p.m. You will have plenty of time to eat and drink as much as you want.
