Whew. It’s been a long work week already! Thankfully, it’s almost time to head out for the weekend and find something fun to do. Head out to a festival and compete in multiple tournaments, enjoy some live music while browsing arts & crafts, or get your grub on with some mac & cheese (and if you do, eat enough for me, too!…diet.)

There’s a ton going on around Colorado this weekend, but here’s what caught the eyes of the OutThere Colorado crew:

1. Mac & Cheese Festival

Mac & Cheese GRUB TIME

I bet you’re thinking “Did I just read that title correctly… a Mac & Cheese Festival?!” The answer is YES. Copper Mountain is hosting a competition for restaurants to find out who has the best mac & cheese. Come out and sample the dishes, compete in some eating challenges, grub to the beat of live music, and enjoy some beverages.
