Mac & Cheese Festival returns to Copper Mountain for a two-day mouthwatering event on July 29-30. With more time to taste varieties of the cheesy comfort food than years past, guests will ultimately determine who earns the $1,000 cash prize and coveted title of “Best Mac & Cheese in Summit County.”
It all kicks off on Saturday, July 29 at noon with sampling of over a dozen renditions of macaroni and cheese from restaurants throughout the region. Guests are encouraged to tease their taste buds with samples like spicy beer cheese mac in a pretzel bowl, buffalo chicken mac & cheese or the three cheese mac & cheese egg roll. In addition, select restaurants will pair a signature Svedka cocktail as part of the sample.
Advance ticket purchase for the 3rd Annual Mac & Cheese Festival is highly recommended and can be done by visiting www.coppercolorado.com. Tickets are $1 with restaurant samples ranging from three to five tickets each. Free live music, kids’ activities and eating contests will take place throughout the weekend.
