At the intersection of smart and cool

The NoVA Mac and Cheese Festival Is Coming to Town Oct. 5!

Macaroni and cheese as we know it may have been invented in England, but it has been perfected right here in the United States. For proof, look no further than the upcoming NoVA Mac and Cheese Festival, scheduled for October 5 in Ballston from noon to 5 pm. At the festival, you’ll find some of the region’s top chefs, most popular food trucks, and finest vendors, who will all be competing for the title of “Best Mac and Cheese.” You’ll be able to sample more than 30 different varieties of the main dish, as you also sip on local craft beers, wines, and ciders. Throughout the day, live bands and entertainment will be performing on site. 

Tickets start at $20 for admission, and are expected to sell out. VIP packages are also available, with early entry, exclusive restroom facilities, and a private lounge. Check the website for ticketing, as well as the latest updates on vendors and entertainers.
