August 26-27, 2023


Over the past two years, a wave of new, exciting pizzerias has spread across the region, and we think it’s about time we celebrate our pizza diversity. Our first Pizza City Fest brought together 40 of the region’s best pizza makers for two days of pizza making and appreciation in the West Loop, along with speakers, demos and seminars. For our 2nd annual event, we’ll continue with another 40 pizza makers, but we’re changing things up and improving the experience.
