A Warm Pie Festival Welcome

From top crust to two crust, juicy to sweet, chocolate to custard all matter of flavors and fillings will flow forth to the delight of an anticipated 28,000 pie lovers from around the world.

Presented by the American Pie Council®, an organization dedicated to preserving America's pie heritage, the popular festival returns to Celebration with all the activities that have made it a favorite event for families and remains free open to the public.

Whether bonafide pie lovers or casual nibblers looking for an afternoon of fun, Orlando residents and visitors are invited to stroll through the free-admission festival and enjoy two days of family fun, reminiscent of days gone by. The Crisco® Kids Creation Station will give aspiring young bakers an opportunity to create their own pies or enjoy some fun with pie decorating, pie-scaping, Piecasso tin art and many more activities. The Pietopia Demonstration Stage sponsored by Village Inn and Bakers Square Restaurants will feature entertainment and baking demonstrations with chefs from across the country. Of course, the Great American Pie Festival would not be complete without a Pie Eating Contest, sponsored by Private Selection. Attendees may opt to dig in and compete or simply sit back and enjoy the show. All festival events will be held both days.
