This event is going to be so cheesy - in a good way.

You may or may not know that for the first time ever Lapeer will be hosting a Grilled Cheese Festival this fall. Here is everything I know about the mouth-watering event so far.

When is the Lapeer Grilled Cheese Festival?

The day of delicious decadence is Saturday, September 24th.

What are the Lapeer Grilled Cheese Festival hours?

The event kicks off at 11:00 AM and ends at 8:00 PM.

Where will the Lapeer Grilled Cheese Festival be happening?

The festival will be set up in downtown Lapeer on Neppesing Street. The street will be closed between Court Street and Mason Street.

Who will be preparing food at the Lapeer Grilled Cheese Festival?

Area restaurants will be preparing grilled cheese sandwiches. A list of participating restaurants is not yet available, but I will certainly keep you updated. I think it is a safe bet that most (if not all) of the downtown Lapeer restaurants will be involved and hopefully many more. This event is a great opportunity to showcase some delicious and unique grilled cheese sandwiches. If you represent a restaurant and are interested in being involved, I suggest reaching out to the Lapeer DDA.

What other activities will be happening at the Lapeer Grilled Cheese Festival?

According to The County Press, there will be a Grilled Cheese Eating Contest for multiple age groups. Various vendors will be set up as well.

Consider this your 'save the date' invite for the Lapeer Grilled Cheese Festival. This will be the perfect comfort food festival - I can't wait.
