It's about to get super cheesy in Lake Country. Mac & Cheese Fest, hosted by Outlier Events and the Lake Country DockHounds, is coming to Wisconsin Brewing Company Park.

The indulgent fun will take place on Saturday, Sept. 24 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. with VIP early access at 3 p.m. Last year’s event sold out in Michigan in under three weeks.

Mac and Cheese Fest will feature local establishments’ takes on Mac & Cheese.

Live music and games will also be in the mix.
