‘Mac & Motors’ Macaroni & Cheese Festival

Feb 25 @ 12:00 pm 4:00 pm

Mac & Motors 2024

Sponsored by:

“Mac” your calendar and get ready for our annual macaroni and cheese festival. It’s the “cheesiest” event of the year! Join us on Sunday, February 25th, at noon for a family-friendly event that supports the museum’s mission and helps us choose the area’s ultimate comfort food.

Festival attendees sample plenty of Mac ‘n Cheese before voting for their favorites!

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 ‘n cheese. The vendor who receives the most attendee votes is the winner and receives the “MacBowl” trophy.

Mac & Motors Participating Vendors

The museum welcomes mac & cheese experts from area restaurants, caterers, and vendors as Mac & Motors contestants. Each prepares their favorite mac & cheese recipe and then shares warm and cheesy pasta samples with festival attendees.
