All things pizza to be celebrated virtually in Petrolia this year

Megan Wakefield and Riley Lavinge were making pizzas at Wise Guys during the 2020 Virtual Pizzafest.

The eighth annual Petrolia Pizzafest will once again be a virtual event.

The festival celebrating all things pizza will be held June 4 and 5 with seven local pizza places taking part.

“We had plans to return to (Victoria) Park this year but know that we need to wait a bit longer for that,” says Director of Facilities and Community Services, Dave Menzies noting the province’s COVID-19 regulations don’t allow large groups to gather.

“We wanted to offer something that is fun for families to enjoy, from the comfort of their own homes.”

Athena’s Diner, Bud’s Pizza, Godfathers Pizza, Helen’s Hideaway Family Restaurant, Johnny G’s Premium Pizza Plus, Petrolia Pizza and Subs and Wise Guys Inc. will all be offering specials on the weekend and the town will be hosting entertainment with some of the areas favourite performers for free via Facebook.
