Pie Palooza is a festive brunch celebrating local, Wisconsin-grown ingredients and all things pie. Attendees get their pick of two slices from a buffet of scrumptious sweet and savory pies, tarts, quiches, turnovers, and others, along with a farm-fresh salad and delicious beverages.

Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 at the door (while available), and are sold in four timed seatings. Purchase tickets today!

Pie Palooza FAQ

How do the timed seatings work? 
We sell tickets for four timed seatings to assure shorter lines and plenty of seats. You may purchase a ticket for 9:30-10:30am, 10:30-11:30am, 11:30am-12:30pm, or 12:30-1:30pm. Walkups welcome if slots are not sold out.

How many pie selections will there be at each seating?
We will have a good selection (3-4 savory pies and 3-4 sweet pies) available at each of the seatings.

How much to tickets cost?
Advance tickets are $18 per person. Tickets may be purchased online. If time slots are not sold out, tickets will be available at the door on the day of the event for $20.

Are there tickets for kids? 
We do not sell reduced price children's tickets. But since a meal consists of two slices of pie and a salad and drink, you can choose to share it with your children any way you like. We will sell "extra slice" tickets at the door for ticketholders who feel two slices aren't quite enough. (Extra slice tickets will be $5)

Are there vegetarian options? 
There will be vegetarian pie options available throughout the day. We'll note when sweet pies are made with lard in the crusts. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee options for vegan, gluten-free, or other dietary restrictions.
