Melt N' Toast 2018

Melt N Toast logo 2018

The grilled cheese festival Melt N' Toast will be back at The Takk House in Troy November 17. Tickets are on sale now -- they're currently $30 general admission / $60 VIP. (Prices go up to $35 and $70 after November 2.)

This is the second year for the event and it's is pretty much what it sounds like -- an opportunity to taste a bunch of grilled cheese creations and wash them down craft beverages from regional producers.

The general admission ticket include entry to one session, ten samples of grilled cheese, one free beverage, and a souvenir glass. The VIP ticket includes entry, unlimited samples, unlimited drinks, and a souvenir glass.

There will also be music from DJ Trumastr and a photo booth.

The event has two sessions that Saturday: 11 am-2 pm and 3-6 pm. And tickets are sold per session, so if you're buying a ticket double check to make sure you're getting ticket for the session you want.


Any chance I could swap ten samples of grilled cheese and one free beverage for ten samples of beverages and one free grilled cheese?

Love this idea, but $30 for essentially what adds up to, if you're lucky, one (full) sandwich and a beer... pass

Was excited by the concept last year, but disappointed by the execution. Very crowded and samples were limited, especially for vegetarians.

The number of tickets per session are limited this year, so the crowding issue from last year (with so many people coming through) won't be the case.
