Why Grilled Cheese?
Lakeshore Village BIA was looking for a unique theme for a gathering based around food to encourage residents of Toronto to come and explore the great business in New Toronto along Lakeshore Boulevard.  When the idea of a festival around Grilled Cheese Sandwiches was suggested, we jumped at the chance!  Everyone loves a great grilled cheese sandwich. Right? It’s a comfort food, warm and cheesy goodness.  So, lets go for it!
Each year we grow to be bigger and better than the year before.  With 100% increase of attendees each year, we are definitely the place to be!  This year is no different with family fun events, kids stuff and vendors like any other festival, but our Grilled Cheese Challenge is a call for Food Lovers to come and try some of the best Grilled Cheese Sandwiches out there.  The challenge is real.  The sandwiches are amazing.  From noon till 5pm, you can come and sample Grilled Cheeses from the Challengers (*fees may vary from vendor to vendor) From a simple cheese classic to the gourmet dynamic cheese recipe , we look forward to seeing what the competitors come up with.Come out and for some family fun, great food and vote for your favourite Grilled Cheese Sandwich!
