CLEVELAND — If you want to have a Gouda time this weekend, look no further than the Mac and Cheese Throwdown at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds.

This year’s festival features some of Cleveland’s top food trucks.

Chefs are excited to be a part of the event.

“It's more than just a food. It's bringing people together and sharing their experiences, especially after a tough year,” said Damon Mangano, regional chef for Aramark at the Cleveland Clinic.

Proceeds for the festival ago towards “Working Animals Giving Service for Kids.”

“The community coming out is crucial for not just us, but this year especially, it's also supporting the small businesses,” said Sera Nelson, executive directors of W.A.G.S. 4 Kids.

There will be drive-thru and walk-up options. Those who opt into the drive-thru will have food runners take their order and deliver food back to their car.

You can then vote for your favorite dish and share your experience on social media to win prizes.

Tickets cost $2 per person.

The throw-down will take place on June 6 from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds.
