The Cheesiest Event of the Year Returns March 7!


Thought macaroni and cheese was just for kids? Think again! Join other Mac & Cheese lovers at the 3rd Annual Mac & Cheese Festival benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast on Sunday, March 7 at the Destin Commons! This family-friendly event will feature gourmet, chef-inspired twists on the South’s favorite comfort food. Local restaurants will compete for the best mac in town. Be there to sample everything for yourself and cast your vote! There are three categories that each local restaurant can win in total: Judge’s Choice Award, People’s Choice Award and Kid’s Choice Award. Visitors are invited to taste each delicious vendor and cast their vote — all the while supporting a charitable cause.

​ For the first time ever, the event will offer special V.I.C. (Very Important Cheese) tickets that include an all-access pass to the Beer Garden and air-conditioning seating. “We are excited to bring everyone together for this fun, family-friendly and flavorful event,” Says Shervin Rassa, Chief Executive Officer, The Boys & Girls Club of the Emerald Coast. “This event wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of the vendors, sponsors and attendees who make it a very successful fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs.”

All proceeds benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast which works in our community to promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging, and influence through its programs focused on academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles.

​Sponsorships are available. If your business is interested, please contact the Frances Roy Agency at Tickets are now available for purchase at For more information, visit or follow on Facebook and Instagram.
