There's something heartwarming about mac and cheese on a cold day or any day for that matter.  Everyone has a favorite memory of mac and cheese and everyone has a favorite way to prepare it.   I remember the way mom used to make it, with elbow macaroni and tangy cheese.  This American classic comfort food is so popular in the Binghamton area that it's getting it's own festival celebrating it's goodness.

Binghamton’s first ever Mac & Cheese Fest is a new fundraiser for the Binghamton Philharmonic and they want you to come hungry and enjoy “all you can taste," on April 28th from 5:30-8:30pm at the Holiday Inn, downtown Binghamton.

Nothing but mouth-watering, deliciously cheesy mac and cheese prepared by some of Greater Binghamton's best restaurants.  And the Binghamton Philharmonic is not only hoping you'll come out with your family and friends, but also vote for the best mac and cheese in Broome County.

And what would your favorite comfort food be without a great tasty beverage. With each purchase of an adult ticket, 21 years of age or older, you will receive 5-6 “beer tasting” tickets, where you may try samples from some of our local breweries.

A cheesy and tasty event coming to Binghamton this spring.  To order tickets, call (607) 723-3931 or click HERE for more information.
