Festival goers will be happy to know this year’s Boston Pizza Festival will allow for unlimited pizza slices with “All-You-Can-Eat Pizza.” In addition to pizza, the festival will offer performances on the main stage including: “world renowned pizza acrobatics, cooking demos, and additional special guest appearances,” according to a press release.

A portion of all proceeds from the festival tickets will go to Action for Boston Community Development (ABCD). ABCD is a nonprofit human services organization that provides economically disadvantaged residents in Boston with the tools and resources they need to transition from poverty to stability and from stability to success.

Last year’s Boston Pizza Festival was well attended, but overwhelmed by the large masses of people trying to attend the event. This year, the organizers have made a point to change that to accommodate everyone. In an information session earlier this month, they discussed the new changes made to this year’s festival.

This event is open to all ages. Tickets are $35 before the festival and $45 day of. Tickets for children ages 10 and under are $20. For more information and to purchase tickets visit:
