Mac and Cheese Festival
The Edgewood Mac & Cheese Festival was first established in 2016 and has been re-baked and reimagined post-COVID for 2022 as a unique way for neighbors to experience the burgeoning Edgewood renaissance. From a few local restaurants cooking up their best recipes and more than 1,000 avid Mac & Cheese fans in 2016, the re-baked event in 2022 is expected to host over 30 entrants vying for Atlanta’s best Mac & Cheese recipe. Who does not love Mac & Cheese, the South’s most beloved green vegetable?!
Come be a part of this renewed annual event. Some 1,500 Mac & Cheese lovers in search of the best Mac & Cheese are expected to come from all over Atlanta. But that’s not all! The re-baked and reimagined Edgewood Mac & Cheese Festival will include food and drink served by local businesses, live music and entertainment on a central stage.
Sponsored by the Organized Neighbors of Edgewood (ONE), proceeds from this annual event will go to support Neighbor’s in Need as well as ONE priorities to beautify and improve the safety of Edgewood. ONE is a 501c(3) not-for-profit organization established to promote community engagement, stability, and prudent growth in the Edgewood neighborhood. Neighbor’s in Need is a 501c(3) not-for-profit organization established to assist long time neighbors of the east Atlanta communities to remain in their homes. Assistance focuses on emergency home repairs to help ensure these neighbors remain in the communities they love. Since its inception, the Edgewood Mac & Cheese Festival has been able to donate more than $35,000 to Neighbor’s in Need for helping long time Edgewood neighbors.
