On Saturday, November 2nd, the Mac and Cheese festival arrived in Denver, at Rino Fairgrounds. Local chefs and restaurants whipped out their cheesiest dishes. There were over 20 different kinds of mac and cheese offered from all around the 5280 which included vendors such as: The Arvada Tavern, Boar & Castle, Deputy Spudslinger, Dunbar Kitchen & Taphouse, Mac & Cheezary, Mr. Murray’s Kitchen, Rock N’ Lobster Truck, SugarFire, and X’tabai Yucateco.
Beyond the cheese, there were unlimited beer samplings from breweries across the Mile High City. Some F4L favorites included: fried mac and cheese bites from Deputy Spudslinger, Latin American flavored mac and cheese from Mayyan Street Food, mac and cheese pizza from Ians, and our favorite was the buffalo chicken mac and cheese from the Mac and Cheeseary: a new restaurant in Wheat Ridge that only serves mac and cheese.
The Denver Mac & Cheese Festival supported Minds Matter Denver, a local non-profit that helps high-achieving students from low-income households go to the college of their choice.
We had such a wonderfully cheesy time and we cannot wait to go back next year!
