Hampton Roads Grilled Cheese Festival! 


The first annual Hampton Roads Grilled Cheese Festival will take place Sunday, November 6, 2016 from 12pm - 6pm at The Chesapeake Conference Center in Chesapeake, VA benefiting the Autism Society, Tidewater Virginia.  This is Hampton Roads' first grilled cheese festival.  People love grilled cheese, so lets have a cook off to see who has the most cheesiest, most ridiculous and of course best tomato soup!  This event is open to the public as they are an important part to the best category, Fan Favorite.  With a general admission ticket ($10), you will have access to Hampton Roads' Grilled Cheese Festival.  Each competitor will be handing out samples during the cook off in hopes to win your vote.  There will be a box on the table of each competitor where you can give a donation (of any amount) and the competitor with the most donations will be awarded Fan Favorite. These donations do not go to the competitor. They will go directly to the Autism Society, Tidewater Virginia.  Hope to see you there!
