The town of Celebration, Florida will become the Pie Capital of the World on Saturday, April 26 and Sunday, April 27, 2014, when thousands of pie lovers, tasters and bakers gather together for the 13th Annual American Pie Council’s Great American Pie Festival.
Help preserve America’s pie heritage by taking part in the pie eating contests, pie baking activities, cooking demonstrations, PieCasso art, the Baker’s Square Pietopia stage with live music and entertainment, games and much more.
The highlight, as always, will be the Never-Ending Pie Buffet, featuring award-winning pie, ice cream, toppings, and beverages. Tickets to the buffet are only $10/adults and $5 for seniors 65+ and children ages 6-12, at the door.
It’s such a popular event that over 30,000 people are expected to showup. Oh, sure you can see the highlights later in some Food Network special, but why watch it on TV when you can bbe there in person, enjoying all this pie first hand.
This year will be the 11th edition of the fest and it will take place April 28 and 29 in downtown Celebration.
There will be a pie eating and baking contests, dmonstrations, vendor exhibits, and more, but let’s be honest. You go to a festival like this for the actual eating, which here includes a Never Ending Pie Buffet.
Admission to the buffet is $10 for adults and $5 for children and seniors. Hours are 11am to 7pm on Saturday and noon to 5pm on Sunday.
The annual event is produced by The American Pie Council and includes baking demonstrations and a pie eating contest.
