Mac & Cheese Festival announces competition cook teams

MAC & CHEESE 🧀: The 2021 Mac & Cheese Festival benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast is happening on Sunday, March 7, 2021 at the Destin Commons! We talked with CEO Shervin Rassa this morning about their family-friendly event!

Sunday, March 7, 2021, from 12:30pm – 4:00pm, at the Destin Commons, the family-friendly event will feature gourmet, chef-inspired twists inspired by the South’s favorite comfort food.

Local restaurants will bring their best macaroni masterpieces to compete for the best mac and cheese in town.

There are three categories that each local restaurant can win in total:

  • Judge’s Choice Award
  • People’s Choice Award
  • Kid’s Choice Award.

Event attendees will be able to taste each vendor and cast their vote. All proceeds from the event benefit The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast.

“We are excited to bring everyone together for this fun, family-friendly, and flavorful event. This event wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of the vendors, sponsors, and attendees who make it a very successful fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs,” said Shervin Rassa, CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast
