The Grilled Cheese Invitational (GCI) is the largest, craziest, and most exciting Grilled Cheese cooking contest in the country and is the best thing to happen to sliced cheese since sliced bread! The GCI promotes an almost scary pursuit of perfection in a Grilled Cheese Sammich and allows for amateur and professional chefs to compete side-by-side in the hopes of becoming a true Grilled Cheese Champion.
The event was created by Tim Walker in 2003, in an artist loft in Downtown Los Angeles as a competition between friends and since then, has grown into a national movement dedicated to perfecting the art of grilled cheese, with thousands of cheese fiends and regional competitions across the country.
Check out free stuff from their sponsors: Their exclusive cheese sponsor, Cabot Creamery, will be providing samples of grilled cheese made from award-winning cheddar and other delicious cheeses. They also have free samples from, Boulder Canyon potato chips, Kruegermann Pickles, Izze Sparking beverages, and Fuze beverages!
Visit the Beer & Wine Garden to get tastes from New Belgium Brewing, Lagunitas Brewing, Stone Brewing, and more. Back by Popular Demand: March Fourth Marching Band are driving their weird selves all the way down from Portland, OR to come and rock us to pieces with their massive, musical, marching riffs!
Think you got what it takes to be a “Grilled Cheese Champion?” Put up your dukes and register as a competitor. Each competitor will receive a sampler of cheese from Cabot Creamery, as well as an on-site kit filled with OXO supplies!
