Why should I go?
The Boston Pizza Festival returns to City Hall Plaza this weekend with more than 30 pizza vendors, live music, and pizza-making demonstrations. The festival features local favorites, including the North End’s Rina’s Pizzeria, Newton’s DaLa Posta restaurant, Detroit’s Motor City Detroit Pizza, and the Somerville-founded chain Bertucci’s. There will also be Italian chefs, and gluten-free and vegan pies will be available.
For visitors 21 and over, the festival offers beer and wine pairings, as well as mixed drinks, including margaritas, pina coladas, and Aperol Spritzes.
The event is returning after a three-year hiatus, and organizers hope it will be the biggest and best Boston Pizza Festival to date. In addition to food and drinks, the festival will showcase a live DJ and acoustic music performances. Visitors can also participate in interactive cooking demonstrations and learn how to make their own pizza.
