Great American Pie Festival

Submitted by on March 6, 2011 – 12:00 amNo Comment

The town of Celebration, Florida, will become the Pie Capital of the World April 9 and 10, 2011, when thousands of pie lovers, tasters and bakers gather together for the ninth year in a row for the Great American Pie Festival. The highlight (as always, Road Trips Foodies), will be the Never-Ending Pie Buffet, featuring pie, ice cream, toppings and beverages.

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, California Raisin Marketing Board, J. Horner’s Desserts, Kroger’s Private Selection, Publix Super Markets, Inc., Rocky Mountain Pies, Smucker’s Toppings, The Folger Coffee Company, Village Inn, Wick’s Pies and Winn-Dixie. The event is sponsored by Crisco (now a trademark of The J.M. Smucker Company).

Thousands of children will make their own pies at the Kids Creation Station. There will be pie decorating, pie “scaping”, pie tin art and many more pie activities to enjoy. The Pietopia Demonstration Stage features entertainment and baking demonstration by chefs from across the country. Of course, no pie festival would be complete without a Pie Eating Contest.

It all takes place in Lakeside Park from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. April 9 and noon to 5 p.m. April 10.
