THANK YOU "Eat Mac to Give Back" PARTICIPANTS!
Media sponsored by:
While there will be no fest in 2021, we still brought you some of the best mac n' cheese in New Orleans!
“Eat Mac to Give Back” was a fundraising initiative in July/August 2021 in partnership with NOLA T-SHIRT OF THE MONTH CLUB.
After over a year in a pandemic, youth services and small business are two of the hardest hit sectors. We just wanted to try and make a difference as New Orleans rebuilds! That's why we decided to support the YOUTH EMPOWERMENT PROJECT, which engages young people with free education, mentoring, employment readiness & enrichment programs.
The fundraiser itself included neighborhood restaurants that were featured on a mac n' cheese map of New Orleans and in turn they provided lagniappe to all purchasers of NOLA Mac n' Cheese Fest swag. See below for the map design and a list of participating restaurants.
We appreciate their support as well as yours! Thank you so much to all participants in this year's fest-less fundraiser. We hope to see you in person soon!

The 4th Annual NOLA Mac n' Cheese Fest
is slated to be back in 2023!
We’re sad to announce that NOLA Mac n’ Cheese Fest 2020, 2021, and 2022 were cancelled due to covid-19 and the after effects. HOWEVER - we are excited and hope to return in October 2023! We're planning on expanding our restaurant partners, providing additional on-site offerings, and going to bring you an awesome event, once again!
The festival will be FREE to enter with food and drink tickets available for purchase on-site. We’ll have tons of mac n’ cheese, live music and drinks, plus an artist market, a Play Area and of course, the awarding of the coveted Macaroni trophy for the best mac n' cheese in New Orleans!
Bring the whole family!
PLEASE NOTE: Any pre-purchased food/drink tickets are transferable, but not refundable unless event is cancelled.
