Melbourne’s Getting A Cheese Toastie Festival This Weekend

Welcome To Thornbury has done it again. And by ‘done it’ we mean launched a dedicated cheese toastie festival. Why? Because why the hell not, that’s why.

Every month the WTT guys sit around and think up zany schemes to crush our self-discipline. A week ago it was chicken nuggets, before that we had Greek food and Ron Swanson and hot sauce (not all at once).

This week it’s cheese toasties. God’s greatest accomplishment.

The event will run over Saturday and Sunday and feature the usual range of revolving food trucks. Think big names like Mr Burger, Belles Hot Chicken, Frencheese, The Gozleme Station and Those Guys Food. Weirdly, Toasta (Melbourne’s actual toastie truck) didn’t get a look in. Shrug.

Entry is free, as usual, and there’ll be dozens of toastie-related treats to try. Cheeseburger toasties, vegetarian toasties and even dessert toasties are on the cards. Plus a ‘Toastie Degustation’. This one is ticketed (you can book your spot over here), and features four artisan toasties, each paired with Goose Island Specialty beer (or wine, if you want it). Tickets for that are $30 bucks.

If you are what you eat, then we’re already about 20% cheese toastie. This weekend we’ll be kicking that up to 50%.
