The Greater Kings County Chamber of Commerce (formerly the Lemoore Chamber of Commerce) has rebranded Lemoore Pizza Festival to Lemoore Days in 2023.    

Friday, 5-10 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Sunday Noon-5 p.m. Free

Lemoore Days offers many of the vendors and activities previously found at the Pizza Festival such as local food and drink vendors, live music and entertainment, interactive exhibits and  family-friendly activities.

Archived for the memory of Lemoore Pizza Festival (R.I.P.)

The Italians claim to have created the pizza Californians adore today--the kind with tomato sauce on it. California loves pizza so much that famous chain pizza restaurants such as Shakey's and California Pizza Kitchen come from our state, just like the Pizza Festival held each spring in Lemoore. Celebrating its 19th season in 2019, the beloved pizza festival is unique.

Be a slice of history at the annual Central Valley Pizza Festival at 12 p.m. in Lemoore City Park. Pre-registration required:


  • Food booths, craft vendors, band in the park gazebo.

Saturday - Giant Slice Contest

  • Pizza decorating contest. Teams have 30 minutes to decorate a slice of the 9-foot pizza using edible ingredients.

Pizza Picassos are encouraged to create a super slice of the Mega Pie. The competition is free to enter, reserve your spot. The Lemoore Chamber of Commerce provides each team with the pizza pan, dough and all the ingredients to prepare your pizza creation. Only 16 slices are available.
