Oh ya, it's happening. The Kalamazoo Growlers are hosting the new, Mac & Cheese Festival, at Homer Stryker Field in Kalamazoo Saturday, October 5th from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. There will also be beer sampling going on as well because, let's be real, those two things go hand in hand. The Growlers released the following statement over the weekend on their event page:

For the love of all the gooey and creamy mac and cheese, the Kalamazoo Growlers Baseball Team is hosting a crazy new event highlighting local food vendors for their unique take on mac and cheese along with a variety of beer samples.
The event will likely sell out in advance, so we cannot guarantee that there will be tickets available at the door. The only way to guarantee tickets it by buying online in advance, or you can purchase in person at the Kalamazoo Growlers box office from 9 am - 5 pm Monday through Friday at 251 Mills St., Kalamazoo, MI 49048.
Tickets will go on sale mid June, but join our priority list on our website to get first access to tickets before they go on sale to the public: www.macandcheesemi.com
