Phoenix Pizza Festival

An entire festival dedicated to everyone's favorite food. If you need any more convincing, picture this: the valley's best pizza makers put their cheesy pies on the market for just $2 or $4 dollar a piece. Take a break in between slices listening to live music or challenging your friends to lawn games. Get your hands on tickets now so you can get your hands on pizza later.
