There Is Going To Be A Mac and Cheese Festival In Atlanta. This Is Not A Drill

Sometimes when life gives you lemons, you throw them away and get in line for the damn Mac and Cheese festival!

Coming in October of 2016 is the first annual Atlanta Mac and Cheese Festival.


It really is happening.

We’re just as shocked and excited as you.

“The Edgewood Neighborhood is organizing the inaugural Mac & Cheese Festival at Walker Park, scheduled for October 8th, 2016,” reads a message on the official Facebook event page for the festival. “This will be an annual tradition to raise money for Neighbor in Need, a Non-Profit that keeps longtime residents in the Edgewood Neighborhood.”

Over 31,000 people are “interested” in attending the event according to the Facebook event page, with already 6,000 people planning on “going” to it.

They are going to need a whole lot of mac and cheese.

The event will be happening at Walker Park (200 Memorial Terrace SE, Atlanta, GA 30316) on October 6.

Restaurants, food trucks, caterers and private chiefs are invited to get involved. If you are interested in having your mac and cheese featured then email: [email protected].
