See you this fall, Kansas City!

When it comes to comfort food, there's nothing like something smothered in hot cheese. Kansas City, Missouri is obviously well aware of that, since they're combining two of their annual food festivals into one cheesy event!

According to the Facebook event page, the 2021 KC Grilled Cheese & Mac Festival is headed back to a soon-to-be-announced venue in Kansas City on Saturday, October 16th. The page reads:

"Due to the rescheduling, we've decided to combine The Great Grilled Cheese and Beer Festival of KC with the KC Mac and Cheese Festival to create what absolutely must be the cheesiest and most incredible carb and gluten overload on the planet!!"

The big event will feature sampling of a ton of different grilled cheese sandwiches and mac & cheeses created by local chefs and restaurants. You'll also be able to cast votes for your favorite and enjoy beer samples from popular breweries.

The event is for ages 21 and older, and the best part is that EVERYTHING is included in the ticket price. That means food sampling, beer sampling, and drinks from the bar. The post says that there are no additional purchases required.

There are two different sessions at the KC Grilled Cheese & Mac Festival. The first is from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., and the second is from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tickets are not on sale yet, but you can get notified when they do by entering your name and email address HERE.
