Disney star Adassa headlines a packed entertainment lineup
With Disney star Adassa on tap to perform favourite songs from the hit movie Encanto, Vaughan Pizza Fest is returning this June after a pandemic-induced hiatus.
After a greatly scaled-down event in 2020 and skipping 2021, Pizza Fest is back with the same great pizzas — with even more food and dessert vendors — and a jam-packed music and comic entertainment lineup that will have guests dancing, singing along and laughing.
The event, presented by La Piazza Wood Ovens, takes place June 17th to 19th outdoors at the Improve Canada plaza on Keele Street and Steeles Avenue near Highway 407.
Headlining act Adassa — who voiced Dolores in the Golden Globe- and Oscar-winning Encanto — will be singing songs from the film, including the smash hit We Don’t Talk About Bruno, in an afternoon performance on Saturday, June 18th. She will also be meeting fans for a free autograph signing and photo opportunity session.
Each evening performance Friday and Saturday at Pizza Fest will star Joe Avati, the Australian-Italian comic who still holds the record for the fastest-selling comedy show in Canada — selling out a show in Toronto in less than 10 minutes.Canadian comic Lu Sicilianu Raggiatu will also be performing.
Also appearing Friday and Saturday evening will be Toronto’s Roberta Battaglia, the singing prodigy who placed fourth on America’s Got Talent at the age of 10.
