Dahl Restaurant Group, led by award-winning chef-owner Lisa Dahl, will host the first Mystical Pizza Festival to celebrate the opening of her second Pisa Lisa location in Sedona’s Village of Oak Creek. The three-day festival will run from Friday, September 16th through Sunday, September 18th to showcase an out-of-this-world pizza themed party, Sedona style while also honoring the revered fare and exercising special rituals to spread goodwill across the hospitality industry.
Mystical Pizza Fest will kick-off on Friday evening with a flying saucer unveiling, drum ceremony conducted by Sabrina Sandoval, surprises from roving magician and Yo-Yo Master Michael Steele, a pizza dough ribbon cutting ceremony with esteemed guests including President and CEO of the Sedona Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau Michelle Conway, and a special blessing from Havasupai Medicine Man, Uqualla, over the mosaic covered Mugnaini pizza ovens to honor the hospitality community as a whole. Wine and pizza are sure to keep spirits high as moonlight is harnessed to supply energy on the eve of the fair on Saturday and Sunday.
The weekend carnival will feature a variety of sensational attractions including Orgone Knights’ crystal healing pyramids curated to turn negative energy into positive energy; sound therapy, chair massages, and red light therapy from Sedona Infinity Spa & Wellness Center’s Gigi Rock; imaginative creations from Silhouette artist Kevin Overhulser; and readings into the future via Astrologer Valentina Leyshyk, Madam V. The entire family, including Fido, is invited to partake in the Sedona magic at Mystical Pizza Fest! Furry family members will savor the doggie meatball tasting and are welcome to relax under the tender touch of Lori Lane from Raven’s Call Healing Center who will provide pets with reiki, animal massages and sound healing. Lisa Dahl will be available for a book signing — her acclaimed cookbook travel memoir “A Romance With Food.” Guests are encouraged to dress in strictly mystical attire and come ready with cell phones fully charged for photo-ops with the giant pizza themed photo stand in-board designed by Ann Rhinehart, which will be revealed on Friday evening. Lisa Dahl and her dedicated team at Dahl Restaurant Group have curated a weekend of events under the direction of Marlo Johnson of Oak Creek Arts & Crafts Shows to make memories Sedona-style and create positive vibrations for the Sedona and hospitality communities, while celebrating the opening of their second Pisa Lisa restaurant.
