Community Grief Support’s Junior Board will bring back the ultimate celebration of the South’s favorite comfort food at a fun, family-friendly event on November 14! Enjoy fun festivities, live music and yummy mac n’ cheese at Back Forty Beer Company, 3201 1st Avenue North, near Sloss Furnace.
There will be dozens of vendors (many who have participated before) who will give samples of their own versions of mac n’ cheese. This year, there will be cook teams and home cooks included in the friendly competition. Local “celebrity” judges will taste all the dishes for a fun awards ceremony. Activities for kids include a balloon clown, face painting, a scavenger hunt and interactive games and crafts. The event is pet-friendly and there will be snacks and water for pets of all shapes and sizes.
Reserve your tickets now to take advantage of the early bird price ($15 for adults; $5 for ages 6-12; and free for ages 1-5), by visiting www.macfestbhm.com. Tickets will be available for full price on the day of the event. Don’t forget to bring some extra money for beverages like hot chocolate and warm apple cider if the temperature is cool!
All proceeds go to Community Grief Support to fund free grief counseling, support groups, and community grief education in the Greater Birmingham area.
