There's only been one Akron Pizza Fest, but I can absolutely tell you that there should be more.
And now we have word that there will be more this year!
Organizers have set Labor Day weekend as the day they'll return to Lock 3 for the second annual Akron Pizza Fest that was forced to take last summer off due to the pandemic.
Back in 2019, the innaugural event kicked off with live music, entertainment, games, prizes, and so much more family friendly fun. I actually had the honor of being a guest judge for the Best Pizza contest, and let me tell you I've never eaten more pizza in one sitting in my life. But it was a wonderful time and the pizza was even better. I felt my judgement was fair, balanced, and accurate, even though it was really hard. All of the entries were fantastic!
So take my word for it, Lock 3 is the place to be this Labor Day weekend for Akron Pizza Fest II! Check out AkronPizzaFest.com for all of the details and we'll see you there!
