(WSVN) - Sure — it’s the season of giving. As in, give me the turkey! Give me the potatoes! Give me the stuffing! And that’s just breakfast. But if you want to enjoy the holidays with a heaping helping of healthiness, Deco’s found just the place for you to veg out.
“Vegan” is the key word for the first-ever South Florida VegFest at Fort Lauderdale’s War Memorial Auditorium.
Kyle Michaud: “We decided to produce the VegFest to give consumers the opportunity to come and experience different vegan products that are available on the market locally and nationally.”
It’s a way to satisfy your curiosity about a unique way to live.
Kyle Michaud, Very Vegan: “For people interested in a cruelty-free lifestyle, we have all kinds of plant-based offerings to sample and showcase.”
The one-day event features tons of very cool offerings. You can pick up some organic clothing from Arow Green Label.
Carolina Fopma, Arow Green Label: “Because the quality of the product is a lot higher; the clothing is a lot softer and the fit is a lot better, and it’s also better for you because the clothing doesn’t have any chemicals.”
You can get physical at the fest if you want to. Yoga experts will be on-hand to offer their expertise.
Corbin Stacy: “We’ll also be doing some adjustments and talking about yoga and health on the spot. So, if people want to come in and talk about their ailments, or what they can do in their own personal practices — if they have one, or where to start, where to begin — we’ll be providing a lot of information about yoga health and fitness.”
Amy’s Little Chunks of Love is a food truck that delivers desserts guaranteed to satisfy your cravings and keep you feeling good.
Amy Robinson: “They’ll find that they’re gonna feel better. They’re not gonna have the bloating, and they’re gonna enjoy flavors that are every bit as delicious as when they were not eating vegan or gluten-free foods.”
Tunie’s Natural Grocery and Vitamin Market is the main sponsor of VegFest. They’re doing more than just lending their name to the event. They’ve got a bunch of vegan lunches happening, including mushroom tacos.
And that’s just the start.
Gail Silverman: “We also have tons of specials going on in the store, so anybody that’s a VegFest ticket holder or pass holder can participate in those. We’ll have a golf cart that will take them back and forth from the store to the event.”
Remember the date: Saturday, Dec. 4. VegFest is definitely the place to be.
Kyle Michaud: “We’re giving Fort Lauderdale the opportunity and beyond the opportunity to come experience some of the best stuff the vegan market has to offer.”
VegFest, Saturday, Dec. 3, 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.
War Memorial Auditorium, Fort Lauderdale
