On October 12, you’ll have the chance to satisfy your cravings at NOLA Mac N’ Cheese Fest presented by Waitr. From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., head to Armstrong Park to choose from over a dozen different restaurants serving up mac n’ cheese. If you can’t decide which dish is the best, leave it up to the experts judging the competition for the title of “Best Mac in New Orleans.” 2019 will feature a new Mac N’ Cheese Eating Contest. There will also be other food available, along with music, and admission is free!
