Holy Macaroni, Louisville is hosting another round of the Louisville Mac & Cheese Festival on Aug. 26 at Fourth Street Live. There will be over 15 local restaurants, food trucks, and chef creations and of course, cheese, cheese and more cheese…and pasta.
Over 40 types of Mac & Cheese will be featured at the event and the festival will include a Kids Fun Zone with carnival games and activities, Mac & Cheese and French Fry eating contests, a cheese fry bar, awards, beer, ax throwing, live music and more. I mean ax throwing at a festival where folks are pumped full of pasta, potatoes, cheese and beer. Sounds legit.
