The 2020 Houston Mac Attack festival is happening Saturday, March 28, 2020, and you’re going to want to get there. Why? Because it’s all-you-can-eat macaroni and cheese, and it’s a 21+ event (sorry kids, but Mom and Dad have celebrated you in many ways… now they need some time to celebrate great food!).

For almost eight whole hours, this classic children’s food favorite will be the center of some adult attention as its celebrated in a huge way! The upcoming Houston Mac Attack festival will feature dozens of variations for macaroni and cheese that has fed families for years. From gourmet creations to simple and savory, these dishes are something you need on your bucket list! There’s also an open bar at which you can cleanse your palette and make your rounds feeling refreshed.

Shared on the Food Network YouTube channel, the video above shows Ree Drummond (a.k.a. “The Pioneer Woman”) cooking up a batch of her own version of this delicious comfort food. We’re sure you’ll get a sampling of something similar, and then some, at this taste-worthy Houston event! Will this festival be cheesy? Absolutely! And that’s a title that the 2020 Houston Mac Attack wants to earn. A number of local restaurants and chefs will come together with their recipes for cheesy success with the hope of walking away with the title of best dish! Event visitors will get the chance to vote for their favorite following every sample, leaving it all up to their taste buds as to the top-ranking selection. And the only rule that applies is that it be cheesy! Their selections promise to range from innovative to a traditional staple, with or without vegetables, various seasonings, baked or simply sauced… and all with a variety of textures and tastes. General admission for this tasty Texas festival includes unlimited macaroni and cheese samples, the open bar, as well as a spork, commemorating the occasion. Those wanting to get ahead of the crowds and get their hands on the first samples can pay an additional $30 for early access! P.S. this would make a great Christmas gift for those foodies on your gift list, and maybe you could go with them! You can never get enough macaroni and cheese goodness in your life!
