  • About the event

    NOLA Mac N Cheese FEST is expected to be the largest Mac N Cheese Festival in the United States in its very first year, with more than 20,000 guests expected on the day of the festival.  The event will be held from 11:00 AM - 7:00 PM at Louis Armstong Park in New Orleans, adjacent to the historical French Quarter.  We will feature 20 restaurants, a panel of professional and celebrity judges for the Mac N Cheese contest, live music, beer, liquor and beverages.

    Why should you sponsor?

    We are intersted in providing our sponsors with more than just "signage" and logo exposure.  We are customizing each sponsor package to best generate the desired return directly to our valued sponsors.  In addition to the standard items such as hospitality tents, media exposure, signage throughout the event, etc., we are intrested in creating ways in which customers are driven to you following the event as well as providing reasons for them to visit you or use your services/products event before the festival itself through giveaways associated with the pre-purchase of festival tickets, etc.  We are creating not just a festival but an event that we will be proud to say that the guests, sponsors, restaurant participants and everyone involved is excited to come back again year after year.

    Kent Broussard

    My name is Kent Broussard.  I am the owner and CEO of an NHRA racetrack called No Problem Raceway.  We host numerous large events each year, in which we accomodate approximately 10,000 for 4-5 days on site, so I am not new to hosting large gatherings.  As frequent visitors and praticipants of the many festivals in New Orleans, my wife and I created the Mac N Cheese Fest simply because one did not exist!  Within the first 60 days of creating a Facebook Page and web site, we had approximately 5,000 people "interested" and close to 1,000 "going" strickly from word of mouth, even though the event was more than seven months away.  We are very detail driven and have a great desire to make this one of the most successful and talked-about festivals, not only in New Orleans, but nationwide.  We think "outside the box" when it comes to creating ideas to best fill the needs of our sponsors, customers and restaurant/music participants.
