Get Excited for Our Sep 16-17 Pizza Fest by Looking Back at 2016

Wellity, wellity, wellity, doesn't time fly? It has been almost an entire year of dietary downtime since our last pizza bonanza, letting our stomachs rest in order to maximize the gleeful face-stuffing that is to touch down on September 16-17, 11am-8pm, at Wangjing Soho.

That very venue was also home to last year's Pizza Festival and proved a fine location for a street party vibe, with vendors lining up and down and allowing plenty of space to feature each unique variety available, as well as the necessary room to collapse in a dough-induced catatonic state.

Let's hope the smog stays in Hebei this year

That's right, not even the smog, which came in determinedly thick and fast, nor the drizzle could stop you all from coming out and feasting on the wares of two dozen of the city's finest pizza establishments last year, a testament to your love of anything covered in cheese.

Expect more of the same to come next month, with nearly 50 food, drink, and other vendors already confirmed to attend (more on them in the coming weeks), as well as some mean entertainment to keep you standing and dancing. So far, we've secured two of Beijing's liveliest bands – The Hunters and The Mac Daddies – as well as the smooth Caribbean jazz sounds of Time Out (in no way related to a certain other publication that shall not be, well, named too late).

That Caribbean feel will continue throughout the weekend given that it's a part of this year's theme. So expect sunny vibrations on the ground, even if the sun happens to be obscured. To ensure that, there'll be carnival games, magic shows, as well as carnival dancers to give Beijing a splash of color.
