This summer, Vancouver is finally getting a food festival devoted to the best food ever—mac and cheese! Whether mac and cheese is your favourite childhood food or your current obsession, the comforting gooey cheesiness is so satisfying. The Mac and Cheese Festival is going to be a can't-miss foodie event this summer in Vancouver.
There will be dozens of varieties of mac and cheese to choose from and you're going to want to eat them all! Teams of mac and cheese makers will also be competing in a heated, cheesy competition to determine who makes the best mac and cheese in the city. There are cash prizes for the Most Creative, People's Choice and Judge’s Choice.
Luckily for Vancouverites, the festival is totally free to attend and you can help vote for the winner!
There are usually two camps of mac and cheese eaters, specifically regarding condiments—do you use ketchup and/or hot sauce or do you eat the food naturally as it was intended? Either way, ketchup or not, you're going to love the offerings at this festival! Mac and cheese is the ultimate comfort food, so you'll definitely be happy at this cheesy event.
The Mac and Cheese Festival is going on tour throughout Canada in 2019 and it will be coming to Vancouver on Friday, August 9 to Sunday, August 11 at Concord Pacific, close to Science World and BC Place Stadium. The festival is free to attend.
