An exceptionally cheesy festival is coming to Ballston this fall.

The “Nova Mac and Cheese Festival” will be held along N. Fairfax Drive near the Ballston Metro station on Saturday, Oct. 5, according to event listings.

The festival is being produced by TasteUSA, the same company that’s behind an upcoming “Chesapeake oyster and wine festival” at National Harbor.

“Get your tickets and get ready to taste the most fantastic thing ever created on this Great Earth,” says the event listing, “cheesy, gooey, over-the-top macaroni.”
