According to the Connecticut Post "Bridgeport to host the first-ever CT Pizza & Brew Fest in July. A new festival is launching to celebrate one of the greatest love stories of all time: pizza and beer. The inaugural CT Pizza & Brew Fest is coming to the Hartford HealthCare Amphitheater in Bridgeport on July 16th. General admission for the event, which is sponsored by New Haven Pizza School and Connoisseur Media, is $15. That covers entry between noon and 3 p.m. Attendees can buy a la carte slices from a variety of pizza trucks and sample pours from craft breweries.
There will also be dessert trucks selling sweets, live music headlined by The Pop Rocks and pizza panels led by Frank Zabski, founder of the New Haven Pizza School and a co-organizer of the event."
According to their website "The VIP tickets, which are $50.00 and $25.00 for children, will get people in an hour early and grant them all the pizza they can eat. “I really hope people will come to the pizza panels,” Zabski, a West Haven native said. Those include one about the icons of New Haven pizza, and Zabski is hoping to have owners from places like Frank Pepe Pizzeria and Sally’s Apizza join him; how to make New Haven pizza; and how to make other styles of pizza, like New York and tavern. Zabski says he’s hoping to add a fourth panel. The festival is still accepting applications from vendors who are interested in participating. “On the pizzeria side, we’re looking to get 12,” he said. “We’re going to have a challenge, because in order for you to be at this event, you have to have a food truck or pizza truck.” Taken from the Connecticut Post website.
