After hosting its sellout event in March, Austin’s popular Mac & Cheese Festival continues its “take & bake” virtual pop-up series with an inspired theme of cheesy goodness.


On May 2nd, the festival will host its second event in their pop-up series, with Austin Mac & Cheese Festival’s “Brunch de Mayo” pop-up.  This event will highlight the delicious flavors of seasonal brunch-inspired mac n’ cheese offerings from some of Austin’s most notable chefs, restaurants, and food trucks.


Like the previous pop-up, the event follow safety precautions to protect ticket holders from COVID-19.  Each ticket offers contactless pick-up from their vehicles as well as an easy-to-access outdoor table, for walk-up and takeout.  Using a simple set of instructions, guests will be able to enjoy a “take & bake” package loaded with mac n’ cheese samples to heat in a home oven.  This year’s festival features a talented line-up of some of Austin’s finest restaurants and chefs, including Reunion 19, Brooklyn Breakfast Shop, and Rosedale Kitchen just to new a few.

Also participating and returning to the competition is the festival’s “Taste of Mardi Gras” pop-up champion, Swift’s Attic Executive Chef Donnie Forehand, who offered a Fat Tuesday mac n cheese dish.  With this event’s talented line-up and a brunch theme, tastings are looking to be more flavorful than ever.
