It’s back! The Austin Mac & Cheese Festival 2022 is now Mac N Grilled!
The Austin Mac & Cheese Festival
The Austin festival brings together the hottest chefs, eateries, and food trucks offering Austinites a taste of some of the cheesiest and most exciting dishes in town.
Attendees get to taste samples from each chef and vote for their favorites.
Last year, I had a blast at the 2021 Mac & Cheese Fest. So, of course, I was excited to attend the Austin Mac and Cheese Fest Media Preview Party for the 2022 festival.
The Austin Media Preview Party
Hayden Walker gathered bloggers and journalists at the AC Hotel Austin Hill Country’s Violet Sky Rooftop Lounge on September 27. We enjoyed the amazing Hill Country views as well as sips and bites from a few local brands and restaurants.
New this year, for 2022, when the festival returns, they are adding GRILLED CHEESE!
