There's beer festivals, donut festivals, cherry festivals so why the heck shouldn't there be a Mac & Cheese festival?!

Mark your calendar for Saturday, October 5th because Michigan's first ever Mac & Cheese Festival will be held in Kalamazoo. Perfect timing as you're transitioning from summer body to winter body.

The event is being hosted by the Kalamazoo Growlers Baseball Team and will feature local vendors putting their own spin on the classic comfort food. And beer samples of course, cuz duh lol.

The Mac & Cheese Festival is for all ages and will be held at Homer Stryker Field. Tickets go on sale Saturday, 6/28 to those on the priority list. Tickets to the public go on sale sometime in July. The event is expected to sell out which means tickets will not be guaranteed day of. You can add yourself on the priority list here.
