‘Mac & Motors’ Macaroni & Cheese Festival

Feb 25 @ 12:00 pm 4:00 pm

First Annual Macaroni & Cheese Festival

“Mac” your calendar and get ready for the first event of our ongoing 20th-anniversary celebration. It’s the “cheesiest” event of the year — our first-ever “Mac & Motors” macaroni and cheese festival sponsored by Members 1st Federal Credit Union.

Join us on Saturday, February 25th, for a family-friendly event that supports the museum’s mission and helps us choose the ultimate comfort food.

Festival Attendees Enjoy Plenty of Mac ‘n Cheese and Cast Their Votes for the Winner

Festival attendees receive museum admission and a book of Mac & Motors tickets. After using the tickets to sample the signature recipes of our participating vendor, guests use their final ticket to cast their votes for their favorite mac & cheese. The vendor who receives the most attendee votes is the winner and receives the “MacBowl” trophy.
