Cheese lovers have a lot to look forward to with the Grilled Cheese Fest taking over St. Paul Square on Saturday.

Now that the colder weather is here again, San Antonians will be able to keep warm with lots of melted cheese between a variety of breads. EgCollaborations is welcoming 13 vendors to bring you all the cheese you can squeeze into an afternoon (yes, even if it's raining).

TheGypsyDiner, Benjie's Munch, Guerrilla Gourmet, Bexar Kitchens, Home Team Hot Dogs, Its Destiny Catering, Zocca Cuisine d'Italia, Max's Wine Dive, Smackerel San Antonio, Backwoods Beats & Eats, Johnny Joe's Concessions, Go Vegan San Antonio and the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa will all be serving up cheesy bites. There will also be drinks, music and market vendors such as BarbacoApparel, CRAVE Cookies & Popcorn and The Pretty Duckling – Gift Shop.

VIP tickets are sold out, but there are still tickets available for the second session for general admission. While the event runs from 1 to 5:30 p.m., the second session will grant you access at 3:30 p.m. Admission ($30) includes 10 grilled cheese tickets (quarter sandwich samples), a beverage ticket and a token to vote for your favorite sandwich.

Tickets won't be sold at the door, so be sure to buy them now.
