Scottsdale mac and cheese lovers eagerly await festival

September 13, 2017 by  

The area’s first annual Mac & Cheese Fest AZ will be coming to Scottsdale in early October.

Guests will be able to enjoy macaroni and cheese dishes prepared by 30 of our area’s top chefs. Drinks that will complement the tasting experience will be available for purchase.

Amateur mac and cheese chefs will be making videos of themselves concocting their masterpieces and uploading them before September 15. Their friends and neighbors can vote for them until September 25. The top 10 video chefs will be asked to compete in a live cook-off at the fest. The winner will be taking home a $500 prize package and the coveted Golden Noodle Trophy.

Game Central will have games such as Giant Jenga, Bean Bags, and Ping Pong to entertain visitors while they whet their appetites. The venue will have live music, cheese demonstrations, and plenty of entertainment.

Local businesses, crafters, and merchants will be exhibiting their products and services. Many are getting their custom business cards, promotional drinkware, and other promotional products ready to be distributed.

Admission ranges from $15 to $75 and does not necessarily include food and drinks. These tickets will be available inside the venue and online.

Mac & Cheese Fest AZ will be October 7 from noon until 7:00 pm at the Scottsdale Waterfront, 7135 E. Camelback Road, Scottsdale.
