Who’s It Going to Be?!
Who’s Going to Get a “Pie-F-E-A Challenge” Pie to the Face?

Deadline to Donate: 5:00 p.m. MDT, Monday, May 17, 2021


Do you see a co-worker listed below? A family member or friend? Or perhaps your boss or an industry leader? No matter who you see, the mighty pie-ticipants below have stepped up to the challenge to have some good old-fashioned fun and take a pie to the face to raise important funds to support the IFEA and the IFEA Foundation.


Funds raised will help the IFEA as we continue to support the Festivals & Events Industry by sharing important resources, presenting valuable education, providing critical information updates, helping establish and strengthen industry connections, and so much more!

With a minimum donation of $5, now is your chance to increase the chances of your favorite person getting a sweet treat to the face while supporting a worthy cause at the same time!

Thank you for your support of the IFEA and the IFEA Foundation!



Let the Fundraising and

“Pie-F-E-A” Flinging Begin!!

How It Works

From now through 5:00 p.m. (MDT) on Monday, May 17, 2021, every $250 raised by each “Pie-F-E-A” participant will result in that pie-icipant receiving a pie to the face!
$250 = One (1) Pie . . . $500 = Two (2) Pies . . . and so on!
The more raised by each pie-ticipant, the more pies in the face they receive!

The Proof

Yeah, we want to see proof of some pies flying into faces too! So, for every $250 raised by each pie-ticipant, we have asked them to video themselves experiencing their "Pie-F-E-A" moment! Non-existent bonus points will be awarded for creativity as to the flavor of the Pie or how the pie is administered! Will Kat choose a Cherry Pie? Will Sam and Alison’s be covered in flowers? Will Kevin’s have a BBQ or Bourbon flavor? Decisions, decisions! We’ll leave the creativity up to them. But on Monday, June 7th, 2021, be sure to keep your eyes peeled to the IFEA Facebook page as we share a compilation video of everyone taking their pie(s!) to support the IFEA!

Want to Nominate Someone to Receive a Pie?

Have someone else in mind you'd like to see receive a pie to their face, that's not already listed here? You’re in luck! For just a small $25 donation, you can nominate that person! IF they accept*, we’ll add them to this page, so they can start their quest to raise $250 and experience their own "Pie-F-E-A" moment too!

* "Pie-F-E-A Challenge" Details

  • All “Pie-F-E-A Challenge” pie-ticipants have voluntarily agreed to receive one (1) Pie to their Face for every $250 they individually raise to support the IFEA and the IFEA Foundation.
  • If a pie-ticipant does not reach $250 raised, they can choose whether they still wish to receive a pie to their face, or they may choose to transfer their funds raised to another pie-ticipant, to help that pie-ticipant reach $250 and receive a pie!
  • If a pie-ticipant does not reach $250 raised, he/she agrees that any donations to that pie-ticipant are non-refundable. The IFEA Foundation and the IFEA greatly appreciate each pie-ticipant's donations and support.
  • If someone donates $25 to nominate an individual to receive a pie to the face, and the individual declines, the $25 donation is considered a non-refundable donation. The IFEA Foundation and the IFEA greatly appreciate each pie-ticipant's donations and support.
