Celebration Is Hosting the Great American Pie Festival 2011

Celebration, Florida is a Disney-built community which is also going to be the Pie Capital of the World on April 9 and 10. Thousands will be coming to Celebration and they could consist of pie lovers, bakers, tasters and spectators who would gather for the Great American Pie Festival. The event will be sponsored by Crisco. One of the highlights of the event will be the Never-Ending Pie Buffet with ice cream and toppings!

Pie lovers from all over the country can taste a sweet treat by few of the best pastry shops in Celebration such as Bakers Square Restaurants and Pies, California Raisin Marketing Board, J. Homer’s Desserts, Bonert’s Slice of Pie, Publix Super Markets, Kroger’s Private Selection, Rocky Mountain Pies, The Folger Coffee Company, Smucker’s Toppings, Wick Pies and Village Inn. Because of this, Celebration shall be called a haven for everyone who have sweet tooth. It is not everyday when pie would be on an overload. Every single person who craves for pies would have their cravings satisfied.

Children can also come to Celebration and make their own pies offered by the Crisco Kids Creation Station. There will also be the all-time favorite pie decorating, pie tin art, family-friendly pie activities and pie tin which everyone could join in. There will also be entertainment and baking demonstration by chefs. Village Inn and Bakers Square Restaurants would be sponsoring the Pietopia Demonstration Stage.

All of the events will happen near the Celebration’s Lakeside Park. The festival will be open from 11 AM until 7 PM on April 9 and noon until 5 PM on April 10. It is open for everyone. Only the Never-Ending Pie Buffet would be charged at very low prices. Adults would have to pay $10 for the pie buffet and children under 12 years old and the senior citizens over 65 will pay only $5 for the buffet.

Great American Pie Festival Returns Once More to Celebration

The Great American Pie Festival made a successful comeback to Celebration, Florida, this year, and it looks like everyone had their fair share of treats such as chocolate custard, sweet potato, berries & nuts, and of course, the official treat of the day, pie. The 2-day event undoubtedly reaffirmed Celebration’s status as the pie capital of the world.

Hands down, the highlight of the event was the Never Ending Pie Buffet, a huge collection of pie slices coming from local, as well as regional and national bakeries, restaurants, and other food distributors. Helping to top things off was Publix and the The J.M Smucker Company, who provided loads of ice cream that allowed everyone to create their own unique pie slices.

Other great moments came from the numerous pie-eating contests and demonstrations organized by bakers and pie-lovers from Celebration and the rest of Orlando. Kids and their parents definitely had a blast at the pie creation station by Crisco, where they could actually “style” their own pies accordign to taste.

Those who take the art of baking more seriously were also treated to a baking competition where bakers from all over the country came together to come up with the best pies imaginable.

Indeed, the 2010 Great American Pie Festival was a spectacular event not just for pie-lovers, but for the whole family.
