You can have your pie and taste it, too! KCRW and The Fowler Museum partner for PieFest - a full day of pie-based festival action at UCLA

At the heart of the festival is a massive pie contest where hundreds of bakers compete to impress the judges - a collection of LA's finest chefs and food writers.

New this year: in order to taste the competition pies, guests must purchase a tasting ticket.  

Tasting tickets cost $40 and include a year of KCRW membership, an exclusive tote bag, and two slices of the competition pies.

The event also features baking demos, a marketplace with pie slices and lunch options, a beer garden, kids activities, exhibitions at the Fowler Museum, and music sets from KCRW DJs Dan Wilcox and SiLVA.  Evan Kleiman, the unofficial Pie Queen of Southern California, presides over the festivities.

Tickets go on sale April 17. RSVP to receive the ticket link. Only those who RSVP will have access to tickets.

This fest is free and open to the public.
