Judging at the GCI!

New for 2010 – The GCI Judging Society!

In order to judge the competition at this year’s GCI, all judges (including MINORS) must register for membership in the judging society and present their membership card at the competition arena in order to judge.


Don’t worry, if you did not sign up as an official judge, there is still PLENTY of fun stuff for you to do and you can still be a judge for the People’s Choice awards, voting on the best grilled cheese offered by our vendors.

Plus there’s plenty of Tillamook Samples, entertainment, Beer and lots more.

There’s even cheese calling!

There’s more than enough event to go around!

The Grilled Cheese Invitational (GCI) is the largest, craziest, and most exciting Grilled Cheese cooking contest in the country and is the best thing to happen to sliced cheese since sliced bread! The GCI promotes an almost scary pursuit of perfection in a Grilled Cheese Sammich and allows for amateur and professional chefs to compete side-by-side in the hopes of becoming a true Grilled Cheese Champion.

The event was created by Tim Walker in 2003, in an artist loft in Downtown Los Angeles as a competition between friends and since then, has grown into a national movement dedicated to perfecting the art of grilled cheese, with thousands of cheese fiends and regional competitions across the country.
