9th Birthday Backyard Bluegrass Bash!

April 23, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Sunday, April 23rd ZAZA Heights celebrates 9 years in business – now that’s a milestone fit for a shindig!

Join us on Sunday for a family-friendly afternoon of celebrating all things ZAZA as we turn our patio and parking lot into a backyard party centered around food, farms, and music. Enjoy LIVE BLUEGRASS from Runaway Planet, meet the farmers from Rattle’s Garden, Little Rock Urban Farming, and New South Produce Cooperative that supply so much of our spring and summer produce that make ZAZA salads rich in flavor, pickup seedlings from our farmers, grab a Lost Forty Brewing beer from the outdoor beer tent, nosh on pizzas made in our mobile wood oven or tasty offerings from WunderBus, stop by the dunk tank and sink local celebrities, leave with fresh fruits and veggies from our mini farmers market, and learn more about the Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance when you donate much-needed kitchen items for Arkansans in need.

We can’t wait to spend a day hanging out with the community that has supported our vision of serving authentic wood-fired Napoli-style pizza served alongside delicious, made-to-order salads and daily-made gelato for 9 years. Thank you Little Rock for making ZAZA your choice for locally and responsibly crafted food. We love what we do, who we do it with, and who we do it for. Cheers to the next 9 years of eating locally!
