CF Veg Fest 2013


Central Florida Veg Fest is back--bigger and better than ever! It will be held on Saturday, October 26, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at beautiful Orlando Festival Park. The first Veg Fest took place at Lake Lily in Maitland in 2005, and the second through sixth at Loch Haven Park from 2007 to 2011. This is the second year at Orlando Festival Park. The return of this extremely successful event has been eagerly anticipated!

The event will include healthy living and eco-friendly exhibitors, speakers, and presentations; non-profits; fun and games for kids; dog and cat adoptions; restaurant booths; food preparation demonstrations, and live music and entertainment. Central Florida Veg Fest will draw both committed vegetarians and those who want to learn more about how to protect our health, the planet, and its inhabitants. You can promote your business or group to thousands of people who want to learn more about vegetarianism and the varied products and services that support a veg-friendly and an eco-friendly way of life. All money raised will be used for local vegetarian education and outreach.

The event is free! Parking for attendees is $5 per vehicle at the west side of Festival Park. From N. Primrose Drive, head east on E. Livingston Street to the parking entrance at the midpoint of the park on the right. Please carpool or ride your bike to the free bike valet off Festival Way.

For more information visit This website will be updated as additional sponsors, vendors, restaurants, speakers, musicians, etc. are added. Please check back often for all the exciting changes! If you are interested in vending, please go to the Vendor Packet page of the website. If you are interested in volunteering, please go to the Volunteer page of the website.

Please also RSVP at the Central Florida Veg Fest 2013 event page. And be sure to Like the Central Florida Veg Fest community page for lots of details about our sponsors, speakers, vendors, non-profits and much more.

I will be presenting a demo and sampling and will post the time when confirmed. Stay Tuned!
