Ozarks Literacy Council’s 17th Annual Pizza Bowl will be held at the Springfield Expo Center on January 19th, 2016 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. For our 2016 event, over 1200 attendees are expected! Area pizza companies compete by providing samples to our panel of celebrity judges and to our event attendees. Pizza companies can earn the title of “Best Local” or “Best National” pizza. 
This family-friendly event features a children’s area that includes bounce-houses, games, face painting, and more.  In addition to the great food and activities, Pizza Bowl also features local bands, a silent auction, a VIP area, and raffle items. 100% of the proceeds support the programs and mission of OLC. 

Purchase your advanced tickets now! Avoid the long lines, and purchase VIP tickets! Act fast, because the VIP room sells out quickly!
