HOW IT WORKS:


Over 15 of the area’s best restaurants & food purveyors will be on dishing out a variety of gourmet Mac & Cheese served in 2 to 3oz sizes. All food related items will work on a voucher system with vouchers sold in sheets 5 for $15. This provides the best opportunity for you to try as many locations & varieties of Mac & Cheese as possible!

Vouchers can be purchased in sheets at voucher stations throughout the festival grounds & will be exchanged for a serving of Mac & Cheese or other food related items. There will be various bars, beverage stations & beer gardens serving ice cold brews, fine spirits, water, soda & other refreshments on a normal cash & credit system. Additional vendors will be on hand to sell funnel cakes, cotton candy, ice-cream, water ice, hot chocolate, desserts & other goodies!
