Louisville will play host to a whole festival dedicated to mac and cheese that will food, games, and events that will be tasty fun for the entire family.

One of the most popular side dishes of all time is mac and cheese. I mean, let's face it, mac and cheese is pretty much one of the best comfort foods there is. Name a better duo than that. Growing up, I ate so much mac and cheese that my parents constantly told me that I was going to turn into mac and cheese. That has yet to happen, but there's still time. Now, I think the opportunity for that to finally happen will be coming up later this month in Lousiville.

Louisville Mac & Cheese Festival

Louisville has been hosting quite a few food festivals as of late. However, one that the city has coming up in August has my name all over it. I'm talking about the Louisville Mac & Cheese Festival coming up on Saturday, August 26th at Fourth Street Live.  According to the Louisville Mac & Cheese Festival's event page:

The Louisville & Cheese Festival will bring together over 15 of the area’s best restaurants, food trucks & chef's cheesy visions into reality! Get ready to try a mountain of cheese goodness at Louisville's largest-ever mac and cheese festival. No matter how you like it—peppery, with ketchup, crispy with breadcrumbs or creamy like butter, you'll find the mac and cheese of your dreams right here!

That in itself sounds like a good time, but there's so much more than that happening at the Mac & Cheese Festival.
