Bring a Love for Cheese to the Say Cheese Fest Chicago
In honor of National Cheese Month, the popular Say Cheese Fest is returning to Chicago on October 14. This year more than a dozen local restaurants will staff booths serving up their cheesiest menu items (think mozzarella sticks, grilled cheese sandwich bites, fried mac and cheese balls, and more). Try ordering an ice-cold beer to wash down your cheesy quesadilla, or pair your queso dip with a vodka-cranberry cocktail.
Tickets start at $30 and include plenty of cheesy samples, along with drink tickets. True cheese lovers might even want to spring for the festival’s VIP passes, which include additional drink tickets, VIP-only cheese samples, and early access to the festival grounds, starting at 11 am.
Make note: this is a 21+ only event and everyone must show ID at the door. Best of all, event proceeds benefit local charities, so you can feel virtuous with each bite.
