Nothing can bring a group of people together quite like a saucy slice of veggies and meat – and this fall? Calgary is going to get deliciously community oriented!

Work up your appetite and break out those stretchy pants, because YYC Pizza Fest, the city’s crispy fundraising event is back and bigger than ever!

Formally known as YYC Pizza Week, the folks behind Calgary’s cheesiest festival have rebranded and are gearing up to debut a new look, new competition categories and a long list of participating restaurants.

Set to return on September 16th Pizza Fest will challenge food enthusiasts to get out, about and sinking their teeth into as many creations as possible – all in hopes of raising money for Calgary Mealshare …. while also awarding your favourite spots with some very prestigious titles.

These include top-rated, most popular and most innovative pizzas, as well as the 2022 Baker Award.

Can’t wait to get started? We feel you! Luckily it won’t be long now until you can grab a bite, vote for your favourite and drift off into a food coma peacefully knowing that for every pizza purchased, $2- $3 will be donated an incredible organization.
