Great Macaroni & Cheese Bake-Off – November 24, 2018

Saturday, November 24, 2018
10am-5pm

SOLD OUT
Tickets: $50 per person / $40 for designated driver.

On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, America’s favorite comfort food gets an upgrade with help from celebrated Northern Michigan chefs. Nine top local restaurants each partner with one winery to create a perfect mac & cheese and wine pairing. Participants get to vote for the best pairing, cheesiest, and people’s choice. This annual event boasts friendly rivalries and has created its own loyal following. Don’t hesitate to purchase tickets, this event sells out every year!

Additional questions can be directed to Peninsula Cellars at 231.223.4050.

How it works:

Tickets go on sale September 26, 2018 at 9AM. Tickets include a souvenir glass and plate, a 3-ounce serving of gourmet Mac & Cheese at each of the nine wineries, plus at least 1.5-ounces of paired wines at each winery.

Designated Driver tickets are also available for purchase. DD ticket holders do not receive a souvenir glass, but do receive the souvenir plate, food, and non-alcoholic beverages.

When you purchase your ticket, you will choose your starting winery location. Your plate and souvenir wine glass will be waiting for you at this location. After you leave your chosen winery starting point, you can select which tasting rooms you would like to visit during the event, in the order of your preference.

If you would like to schedule and purchase transportation for your group, please click the link for Traverse City tour companies & transportation below. The wineries will not provide guests any type of transportation.

All event recipes will be emailed to ticket holders following the event. They will also be available on this website. While we aim to provide a diverse selection of recipes, we cannot guarantee that recipes will meet the dietary restrictions of all guests.

The Wineries of Old Mission Peninsula encourage you to drink responsibly.

Tickets are non-refundable. Transportation not included in ticket price.

If we already bought our tickets a week or two ago, did that price reflect the $10 discount?

The only link I can find in your bio is from a may event

So this is a 3-day event this time? I’ve gone in the past and it was a 2-day.

As our vineyards awaken to the sun and warmth of May, toast to the enchanting beauty of spring, indulge your senses and discover delicious Leelanau Wines splendidly paired with scrumptious small bites! This beloved springtime event includes a self-guided tour along the trail, where you’re free to visit any of the 24 participating wineries in any order you choose on both Saturday (11-6) and Sunday (12-5).

Tickets are $40 and include a souvenir wine glass, along with a featured wine and food pairing at each winery. After your featured pairing, most wineries offer an additional complimentary 2 to 3 tastes.
