The Town of Cary is once again celebrating pimento cheese, but this year the format is a little different, because at the time that the festival was being planned, the state’s restrictions were in a state of flux.
From June 4th to June 13th, 2021, Cary is presenting Taste of Pimento Cheese. 12 Cary restaurants are participating in the pimento cheese festivities and serving pimento cheese items during this time.
Each pimento cheese dish will come with a special edition “Taste of Pimento Cheese” collectors’ pin, while supplies last.
Also you can order a special “Taste of Pimento Cheese” Charcuterie Box for pickup at your favorite Cary brewery or the Downtown Cary Farmers’ Market.
