The 5th annual Mac & Cheese Festival is set to take place on Sunday, March 5th, 2023, from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., at Destin Commons. 

  • The family-friendly event will be a celebration of one of the South’s favorite comfort foods, macaroni and cheese. 

Local restaurants from far and wide will be participating in the event and bringing their best mac and cheese creations to compete for the title of the Best Mac and Cheese in Town. 

The festival will feature three categories for the local restaurants to compete in: Judge’s Choice Award, People’s Choice Award, and Kid’s Choice Award. Attendees will be able to taste each delicious sample from the vendors and cast their vote.

The festival is not only a celebration of mac and cheese but also an opportunity to support a charitable cause. All proceeds from the event will benefit Boys and Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast, a local non-profit organization whose mission is to promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging, and influence through its programs focused on academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles.
