Windsor Pizza Fest & Competition 2017

October 2, 16, 30, November 13 & 27, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Windsor Pizza Fest, the first pizza competition to be held in Windsor, returns for a second year at Higher Limits on October 2, 16, 30, November 13 & 27, 2017.

Tickets are now available in advance online

All across Canada there is talk of Windsor Pizza, just how good it is, and how other pizzas cannot compare.

Whether it’s the signature Galati cheese, tangy sauce, or shredded pepperoni and mushrooms, the fact is well known: Windsor pizza is best.
And while Windsorites each have their favorite pie and pizza joint they call Number 1, there has never been an official event, judged by Windsorites – the highest caliber of pizza eaters – to determine just who makes the best pizza until the Inaugural Windsor Pizza Fest which took place in 2016.

Round 1 of Windsor PizzaFest 2017 features:

2016 Winner: Sam’s Pizzeria and Cantina
Primo Pizza (2016 contender)
Downtown Pizza Co. (Downtown Windsor’s newest pizza joint)

The first event (Round 1) is scheduled for Mon. Oct. 2 and each night features 3 pizza companies and two timeslots for attendees to enjoy pizza, 5:30pm-7pm, and 7:30pm-9pm.

This year participating pizza companies will prepare three pizzas for the competition:

1. Windsor Pizza; 2. Meatless; 3. Anything Goes/Specialty.

Two prizes will be awarded each night: audience favourite, and judges’ choice (judges comprised of a panel of notable Windsorites (chefs, restaurant owners, media personalities, etc).

One pizza company will advance from each round, and the all round winners will compete head-to-head at the Windsor PizzaFest 2017 Finale at Higher Limits on Nov 27.

Be sure to buy tickets early; there’s only 200 available each night!

Tickets are $12 in advance and available online or $15 at the door. Includes 6 slices of pizza & 1 drink.
