The San Diego Mac n' Cheese Fest is back! This year's festival is going to feature even more serious cheesiness. The restaurants are selected from the region’s top culinary talent and attendees can pair them alongside a wonderful collection of local craft beers, wines and other delicious beverages. We currently have 20 restaurants and 14 breweries joining us, with more being added. Come out and sample them all!

Join us on October 26th, where we will again see San Diego's top restaurants competing for the title of San Diego's Best Gourmet Mac n' Cheese. Our very own, Meryl from The Cantore Show, will be one of the judges! It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it!

You will also get to vote for your favorite mac n' cheese while enjoying tasty beverages, music, and our beautiful San Diego weather!

There will be 2 awards given out: Best Gourmet Mac n’ Cheese in San Diego (judged by an expert panel) and People’s Choice Best Mac n’ Cheese (popular vote).
