It’s back! The Windy City’s love affair with pizza will again be the main entrée at Chicago’s 3rd annual Pizza Fest which–after a three-year hiatus–returns to a new location.(The first two fests, in 2007 and 2008, were held in the DePaul neighborhood.)
In addition to thin, thick and gourmet pizza sold by the slice (or whole pies), Chicago Pizza Fest also features plenty of music including legendary Los Angeles New Wave/synthpop band Berlin with original lead singer Terri Nunn, North Carolina folk rockers Delta Rae, and hip hop tribute act Too White Crew. In addition to food and music, the fest will also feature arts & craft vendors plus an opportunity for visitors to vote for their favorite slice.
