Local foodies rejoice: the Macaroni and Cheese Festival is returning to Albuquerque on Aug. 19! With over 30 gourmet vendors in attendance, the festival offers a diverse selection of mac and cheese dishes that comfort food fans won’t want to miss out on.

This year’s event will once again be held on the Albuquerque Balloon Museum Lawn from 2 to 6 p.m. Festivalgoers are encouraged to bring along lawn chairs and blankets—anything they need to stay comfortable as they prepare to chow down. They’ll also come in handy for those who want to relax and enjoy the festival’s assortment of live music and yard games.

Now to the best part: the food. Whether you’re a mac and cheese aficionado or you just love to eat, you’re sure to be pleased by this year’s vendor lineup! Plenty of local favorites will be serving up their take on the classic dish, including last year’s winner, Fork and Fig. For those who like to pair their mac and cheese with a cold brew, there will also be beer and wine tastings going on all festival long.

Tickets can be purchased online now for only $45, with the proceeds benefitting the New Mexico Cancer Center Foundation. Prices go up to $60 at the door, so be sure to plan accordingly!
