I’m in Group C, but want to come early. Can I?

YES! Your group assignment only regulates when you can GET IN LINE for pizza. You’re free to come as early as you’d like and stay for the entire day!

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

On-street parking in the neighborhood is available, and near Berra Park. Uber or Lyft or hitch a ride with a friend for easiest access!

What can I bring into the event?

Your kids (who get in free), your pups, your lawn chairs or blankets, your cute pizza-themed costume, a smile!

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

If you have your ticket digitally on your phone where we can scan you in, that’s all you need!

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn’t match the person who attends?
