2nd Annual Mac & Cheese Fest AZ



Second Annual Mac & Cheese Fest Expands to Larger Venue and Announces New Dates for Extra Cheesy Goodness this Fall

Salt River Fields Welcomes Popular Event and Gives Mac & Cheese Lovers 
Two Tasty Days to Enjoy

After just one year and a turnout that far surpassed all expectations, the second annual Mac & Cheese Fest is responding accordingly with the move to a more spacious locale, an additional day and, optimistically cooler, later fall date. This November 10 and 11, Salt River Fields at Talking Stick will add another delicious event to its calendar and open its gates to Mac & Cheese fanatics from near and far. 

Each day from 11 a.m. - 6 p.m., guests will have the opportunity to taste Mac & Cheese creations from more than 30 restaurants and chefs bringing their cheesiest “A” game to the fields. The event will also feature a dedicated Beer Tent filled with a variety of local brews, a Game Deck for some friendly competition, live music and Demonstration Tent with live cooking presentations. The Home Chef S’Mac Down competition will also return, giving Big and Little Cheese cooks the chance to show off their skills and creativity in the kitchen. 

Mac & Cheese devotees can claim their spot at the Festival early during a special pre-sale ticket release beginning on National Mac & Cheese Day, Saturday, July 14 and running through Saturday, July 21. General admission tickets will be $15, VIP tickets are $75 and include access to the VIP Lounge and a package of food and drink tickets. Children three years and under are free.
