How’s that for a blog post title? Did I get your attention?
Here’s the scoop (or the slice) if you are looking for something different and fun to check out this weekend!
Great American Pie Festival
631 Sycamore St., Celebration, FL
Dates and times:
Saturday, April 27
Sunday, April 28
“For the twelfth year in a row, the town of Celebration, Florida will become the Pie Capital of the World on April 27th and 28th, 2013 when thousands of pie lovers, tasters and bakers gather together the Great American Pie Festival sponsored by Crisco®. The highlight, as always, will be the Never-Ending Pie Buffet, featuring award-winning pie, ice cream, toppings, cheeses and beverages from some of our fine sponsors!
This year, pie lovers from across the country will be treated to sweet offerings by Bakers Square Restaurants and Pies, Bonert’s Slice of Pie, Legendary Baking, Kroger’s Private Selection, Publix Super Markets, Inc., Village Inn, Winn-Dixie, Wick’s Pies and Cabot Cheese. We haven’t forgotten the Dunkin Donuts coffee, the Smucker’s Toppings and the Publix ice cream!! Tickets for the Never Ending Pie Buffet are on sale at the door for $10/adults and $5/seniors 65+ and children 6-12.
Children and adults alike can make their own pies at the Comstock Creation Station. There will be pie decorating, pie art, chef hat decorating and many more pie activities to enjoy. Of course, no pie festival would be complete without a Pie Eating Contest, sponsored by Private Selection. Cost for the children’s area, which includes the crafts and bouncy houses is $10/child. The Pietopia Demonstration Stage sponsored by Village Inn and Bakers Square Restaurants features entertainment and baking demonstration by chefs from across the country and is free to all attendees. Crisco® is a trademark of The J.M. Smucker Company. The Great American Pie Festival is a trademark of the American Pie Council. We love dogs as much as you do, but they are not permitted into the Never Ending Pie Buffet.” (Quoted information from http://www.piecouncil.org/Events/GreatAmericanPieFestival)
Sounds fun right?
I have not personally attended this event, and my schedule is completely full this weekend, so I can’t go this time either. Bummer.
It really looks like a lot of fun however – and I thought I would share this information with you in case you are interested in attending.
Please let me know if you attend! I would love to hear from you. Have a magical day!
