#212 Grilled Cheese Challenge


There’s something special about a grilled cheese sandwich that makes it a great snack among young and old alike. It could be as simple or as complex as one likes. The type of cheese matters. Ditto for the bread. Now take a slew of cooks and restauranteurs that believe their grilled cheese sandwich is the best and surround it with music, fun, and smiling faces and you have the Grilled Cheese Challenge in Etobicoke.

The Grilled Cheese Challenge is hosted by the Lakeshore Village BIA and takes place Saturday June 9th 2018 from 11am to 6pm at Islington and Lake Shore Boulevard West. Not unlike Toronto Ribfest it is a festival and competition surrounding the love of the grilled cheese sandwich. This is serious competition wrapped up in an extremely fun environment. The challenge is open to all, with entrance fee, and as you can imagine the grilled cheese sandwiches are all unique and different depending on the station. It’s incredible to see how popular this event has become in such a short period of time.

Grilled Cheese Stands

It’s not just all grilled cheese. They have face painting and crafts for the kids, classic vehicles on display, loads of vendors selling their wares, other tasty foods, a beer garden to beat the heat, and live music all day. What is also great is we actually get to see the judges sample sandwiches and declare their winners. But pay close attention because there’s a people’s choice award as well. Long Branch Fest is happening as well so enjoy both festivals with a free shuttle bus to bring you between these two great events.

So bring your appetites and get ready to enjoy a fun-filled day of entertainment at the Grilled Cheese Challenge!
