This amazing food festival features San Diego restaurants and breweries for a day filled with specialty mac-n-cheese and delicious beer!  

This local event happens Saturday, October 27th from 11am-2pm, but if you want a sneak peak of all the yummy bites and beer then check out the VIP access pass that allows you entry thirty minutes early! This event was started with the idea of creating a space San Diego residents could get great bites and give back! That’s right; you get to eat, drink, and benefit a good cause! This festival gives back through The World Wide Network of Learning 501c! So if you want to create a better community by eating mac n cheese, this is the event for you!

This year the Mac n Cheese Fest includes two awards! One chosen by a panel of expert judges, which consists of a secret celebrity guest (announced the week of), and the other selected by YOU! Every attendant will get the chance to vote for the crowd favorite Mac n Cheese and be a part of this awesome festival.

Having just fifteen restaurants when they started four years ago this festival has grown so much they are looking at adding an Orange County event! The ultimate goal of the founder James Hayes and the event coordinator Juan Ortiz is to create many more events just like this! Not just mac n cheese but everything from french fries to wings! This year there is over thirty restaurants and breweries involved in the San Diego Mac n Cheese fest that’s thirty tastes of fantastic mac n cheese or beer!
