More than 5,000 have attended in the past and more than $60,000 has been raised! The Magic City Mac + Cheese Fest is part competition, part celebration of the South’s favorite comfort food, and an important fundraiser for CGS. We look forward to having you join us this year!

We will have live music, activities and games for kids, plenty of food and beverages to enjoy, and some friendly mac and cheese competition of course! Pets are welcome, too. It will be fun for the whole family!
