The world's longest calzone.  DJ Pauly D.  All in the same place, on the same weekend.

The world's longest calzone. DJ Pauly D. All in the same place, on the same weekend. No, this is not a dream. This is Vaughan Pizza Fest 2019. Vaughan Pizza Fest is back and ready to serve up some deep-dish fun.  Between July 12th and 14th, hungry Ontarians from across the province will be flocking to Vaughan for a weekend of incredible music and entertainment, and so so so much pizza.  Over 15 pizzerias from across Canada will be offering up their signature 'zas, in addition to scrumptious desserts and a selection of oh-so-refreshing beer. Perfect for a hot summer weekend.

To top it all off, the festival will be hosting the creation of the world's longest calzone and biggest dessert pizza!  Need I say more?

In its fourth year, Vaughan Pizza Fest attendees can look forward to performances by Rob Base, C&C Music Factory, Snap! DJ Livia and Rockelle. Not to mention the main act - DJ Pauly D. The weekend will also be hosted by Vinny Guadagnino of The Jersey Shore.

The festival will also host its fan-favourite event, the Vaughan Pizza Fest World Pizza-Eating Championship!  The stakes of winning are high: the first place prize is a whopping $2,000.  

The best news is that it won't cost you an arm and a leg to get you in on a pizza the action!  General admission will cost you only $20, with Front of Stage Access tickets priced at $45 and $60 for Friday and Saturday, respectively.
