Philadelphia, PA - Philly is ready to eat up a big slice of pizza acreage! Saturday, September 8th, iconic Citizens Bank Park will host Philadelphia Pizza Festival!
This amazing event promises to indulge the taste buds of all attendees as they treat themselves to an afternoon of delicious pizza samples and local and regional craft beers, wines, and cocktails.
Well, as you probably already know, Mother Nature is not cooperating with us today! With the massive amount of rain and heavy flooding around the ballpark last night, we wanted to send out a quick weather & event update.
Walk The Bases. As you know the walk the bases & warning track was weather permitting. Since The Phillies must protect the field, the walk the bases and warning track will not be available today. We are very sorry for any inconvenience.
Rain or Shine. This event is a rain of shine event. While the concourse is mostly covered, many of the best pizza vendors are outside. Please be prepared for rainy weather.
Event Map Updates. We are sorry if some of you could not view the map link we sent yesterday. Due to the heavy flooding last night, we needed to adjust the event layout. Please CLICK HERE for the final version of the map. We did need to modify and relocate the kids zone, please note the new location.
Brought to you by UpcomingEvents.com and A Taste of Your Town. The festival will have unlimited samples of over 200+ varieties of pizza and specialty foods from restaurants, pizzerias, and pizza food trucks from all over the Philadelphia area and surrounding states.
