Grand Pizza Fest

Grand Pizza Fest is here! The event will take place this Saturday, March 24th, at the Grand Haven Community Center from 1 – 4pm.

It is no secret that Northwest Ottawa County has many delicious pizzerias throughout our communities. The Chamber of Commerce Grand Haven Spring Lake Ferrysburg thought this trait should be celebrated and is presenting the first Grand Pizza Fest.

Grand Pizza Fest is an opportunity to taste local participating pizzerias’ pizza and vote for the favorite, naming them the Grand Pizza Fest Grandest Pizza of 2012. On Saturday, March 24th, the Chamber of Commerce, along with the sponsor Centennial Securities Company, is inviting the community to the first Grand Pizza Fest at the Grand Haven Community Center, 421 Columbus Avenue, from 1-4pm.

A $15 entry fee includes one sample from each participating pizzeria and a voting ballot; additionally the first 250 attendees will receive a commemorative Grand Pizza Fest apron. A total of 10 pizzerias are participating in the Grand Pizza Fest, including: Clover Bar, Fricano’s Pizza Tavern, Jet’s Pizza, K2 at the Kirby House, Little Caesars, Mama Mia’s, Mr. Scrib’s, Old Boys’ Brewhouse, Palermo Pizza, and Pizza Hut WingStreet.

Those who really love pizza are encouraged to participate in the Pizza Pie Eating Contest at 3:30pm during the Grand Pizza Fest. The competitor who eats one Fricano’s pizza pie the quickest, will be named the 2012 Pizza Pie Champ and receive a great prize, along with a medal and bragging rights for 2012. Advance registration is required, along with a $10 participation fee, applications can be found at

Throughout the event, musical entertainment will be provided by Barefoot Sunday, a local bluesy, soulful band.
