California Pizza Festival

The Info:

For two days only, Angelenos have the chance to try unlimited samplings of some great and not-so-great pizza, right in the heart of downtown Los Angeles.

The inaugural California Pizza Festival (I still want to call it the Los Angeles Pizza Festival, don’t ask me why – Cary) will feature unlimited samplings from 30 pizzerias from California, Arizona, Nevada, and Georgia, as well as world-renowned pizza chefs from Naples, Italy. Headliners include pizzaiolos from Naples’ Da Michaele, founded in 1870 and known for its feature in the movie Eat Pray Love; and Antica Pizzeria Port’Alba, the oldest pizzeria-tavern in Naples established in 1738.

Domestic participants include Prova Pizzeria, Settebello (our go-to in Pasadena), Ray’s & Stark Bar, 786 Degrees, and 12-time World Pizza Champion Tony Gemignani of Tony’s Pizza Napoletana.

Pizza lovers can enjoy Neapolitan, Sicilian, New York, and several gluten-free and vegan options, as well as loads of entertainment, including live pizza-making demos from the United States Pizza Team; a cookbook signing, demo, and meet-and-greet with Chef Tony Gemignani; acrobat shows from World Champion Pizza Acrobat Danilo Pagano; live music; giveaways from event sponsors; and much more.

General admission tickets are $45/person in advance and $60/person on the day of the event, with children’s tickets available for $20/child between ages 4-10. VIP tickets are $89/person and include exclusive access to the indoor-outdoor VIP space, a private bar, and three beverage vouchers.

Unlimited samplings… mmm.

Unfortunately, we can’t attend! Once again life gets in the way, and we will be out of town this weekend.  If you go, how would you like to do a guest blog post?  Contact us and let’s talk!  Oh well, next year…
