    All tickets purchased for the Mac 'n' Cheese Throwdown by phone and/or online are final. We do not issue refunds or exchanges for any reason.



    ** While mac ‘n’ cheese is the star of the event, participating food trucks will offer additional menu items to attendees. New this year, menu items will be sold separately from general admission tickets. In previous years, all food was donated by restaurants, allowing for discounted ticket prices and a shorter event duration. With the service industry suffering as much as the non-profit community due to COVID-19, W.A.G.S. 4 Kids determined that it was only fair to share proceeds with the service community that has continued to support their mission over the years, resulting in the event’s alternative pricing and extended hours.**

    • This event will be held snow or shine.
    • All tickets purchased should be considered as "snow-or-shine" final purchases.
    • Tickets are single entry. Each attendee must have their own ticket to enter whether they will be tasting or not, including kids.

    Sponsor levels are available and include tickets as well as other program benefits indicated by level of participation.

    Thank you!
