Grand Pizza Fest
Grand Pizza Fest

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.

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

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. 

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 www.grandhavenchamber.org.

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

“The Chamber is very excited to offer this event to the community,” Courtney Geurink, Program & Events Coordinator from the Chamber of Commerce stated.  “We have seven participating pizzerias to date, including Mama Mia’s, Jet’s Pizza, Little Caesars, Fricano’s Pizza Tavern, Mr. Scrib’s, K2 and Old Boy’s Brewhouse.  It should be a great time with great pizza!”
