There's never a dull moment in Toronto during the summer months. There are so many amazing festivals to take enjoy from mac and cheese festivals and Asian night markets to food truck festivals and vegan eats! There's something for literally everyone to enjoy in Toronto this summer.
If you're looking for an amazing festival this summer but have also been searching for the best grilled cheese in the city then this festival is for you! Toronto is hosting a massive Grilled Cheese Challenge this summer to discover who makes the best grilled cheese and that involves eating a lot of grilled cheese and we're not mad about it one bit.
The Grilled Cheese Challenge will be taking over Toronto on Saturday, June 8th from 11 am to 8 pm. Head down to the corner of Lakeshore Boulevard West and Islington and you'll find tons of vendors set up and ready to serve you some crazy grilled cheese creations!
How it works is there will be a judging panel as well as people's choice so if you visit the grilled cheese festival you can vote for your favourite in 3 different categories: best tasting, most unique, and best gourmet. The judges will vote as well as the people to see who wins in the different categories!
If you love the ooey gooey delicious mess that is grilled cheese then you need to head down to the Grilled Cheese Challenge this year and taste some of the best cheesy sandwiches this city has to offer!
They haven't yet released the names of their 2019 vendors but looking at last year's list we can tell that we're going to be in for a treat! There will also be live music, a classic car show, a huge beer garden, axe throwing, and other vendors selling desserts and treats.
