MacChilifest will take place at Bedford Middle School in Westport CT on Sunday Feb. 7th from 11 a.m. to 3.p.m. The event is promoted as a pre-Super Bowl event because the Super Bowl is held later in the day. The big game doesn't kick off until close to 7pm; so instead of hanging around to go out or have friends come over, people come out in droves to judge the best chili and now mac 'n cheese in Fairfield County.  The event will have a tailgate vibe because attendees will come in their favorite team jersey. Some even put on eye black! Even the band from Sacred Heart University comes and pumps up the crowd in anticipation of the big game later that day.Tickets are available online  at www.MacChilifest.org as well as at the door. Adults are $15 and kids (6-12) are $5.
