How is the event effected by Covid-19?
DATED 9/1/2021: Atlanta Grilled Cheese Festival has been postponed to April 30, 2022.
In the wake of the recent events, CDC recommendations, and in effort to ensure the health and wellbeing of our community - we have decided to postpone the Atlanta Grilled Cheese Festival to Saturday, April 30th, 2022.
We at Atlanta Grilled Cheese Festival are dedicated to supporting our community - which includes cheese loving attendees like yourself, all of our hard-working restaurant and food truck partners, as well as our staff and army of amazing volunteers. With the newest recommendations from the CDC to postpone gatherings of 50+ people we feel it prudent to reschedule to a time where our entire community can safely enjoy the festival.
This is not a decision we have made lightly, and we are taking preemptive measures to make sure that all of our guests are receiving ample notices of this change. We love this event and experiencing the shared joy over our favorite childhood sandwich. If you are stuck home during the quarantine, shoot us over some of your grilled cheese combos – either recipes photos (or both!)– we’d love to hear from you.
All existing tickets will be honored, and automatically transferred to the new date (April 30th). There is no additional action needed to transfer your tickets.
