This is my 1st time attending a food fest. What do you mean by all you can taste?
There will be tasting portions of Mac & Cheese from 20-30 participating restaurants at this event. This is the one and only time that you will be in one room surrounded by 30 different types of mac & cheese– I’m pretty sure you should taste them all!
Also, take pics! Lots of pics, you’ll want to remember this moment forever! It’s kind of a big deal!
I don't usually drink alcohol. Will there be other options at this event?
You bet! We’ll have non alcoholic beverages for you! This is all included with your ticket.
What if I really like a restaurant's dish? Can I have another sample?
You bet! If you enjoy a dish, you are more than welcome to go back for another! Just remember– your vote counts in the end, so it’s important go to as many restaurants as you can!
What a creative event! My business/organization would LOVE to be a sponsor for this. Can you please tell me about sponsorship opportunities and how I can support the Mac & Cheese Fest?
Of course we can! Having your support helps our organization grow and remain in this collaborative community. Please fill out information on the CONTACT US page and we’ll get right back to you about how you can sponsor this cheesy event!
I'm a restaurant in the area and missed the sign up! Can I register for the Mac & Cheese Fest 2018?
You sure can! Let us know ahead of time that you’re interested in participating. We would love to have new restaurants in this event, whether you’re in Binghamton or out of town! Bring us your mac!
I have a business that I think would be great to show off at the Mac & Cheese Fest! Can I be a vendor?
Can you give me the low down on parking?
The Holiday Inn lot will be available to those attending– but will book up quickly, we’re sure! There is the Boscov’s ramp right on Water St. that has TONS of spots! Don’t forget the side streets downtown!
