Teams from around the country compete for the coveted World Cheese Dip Championship title. In the past two years, over 10,000 people have come together to celebrate the local phenomenon known as cheese dip by casting their votes to decide what is the best tasting recipe in the world. Teams are divided into Amateur and Professional divisions. Winners will be determined through a series of blind tastings as celebrities, politicians and food writers/critics. Festival attendees will determine who will receive this year’s People’s Choice Awards.
