What is Cheesetoberfest?

Cheesetoberfest is an all-out, no holds barred, grilled cheese/mac n' cheese competition held at Fordham & Dominion Brewing Company in Dover, DE. The competition features local restaurants and companies battling it out to see who will be this year's Grand Cheezmo! 

There are two categories: Grilled Cheese and Mac & Cheese. View our complete list of competitors here!


The event features local live music, games, delicious Fordham & Dominion craft beer and soda, local vendors, and (of course) plenty of CHEESE! Interested in being a participating vendor for our 2019 festival?
