The First Annual Big Melt, Seattle’s Grilled Cheese Festival

What’s your favorite kind of grilled cheese sandwich? Are you a traditionalist or perhaps more of an adventurer? Regardless, you’ll want to be at Seattle’s only grilled cheese festival, The Big Melt.

The ooey-gooey goodness of melted cheese combined with the crisp crunch of hearty grilled bread are the essential elements of one of the most simple, yet classic, comfort food creations. Participants in The Big Melt will be adding their own twists to the classic as they try to stand out from the crowd.

Festival-goers will reap the rewards as they sample creations from Beecher’s Seattle, Metropolitan Market, The Ultimate Melt and others while also enjoying award-winning craft beer from Stoup Brewing, local wines and other local specialty beverages, snacks and desserts.

The Big Melt will support Northwest Harvest as attendees will be asked to contribute to the “mac and cheese tower” by donating boxes upon arrival.
