Central Florida Veg Fest!

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.

    I feel like the luckiest person in the world that we have VEG CF! I LOVE Veg Fest (and Earth Day!) My sister comes from Tallahassee for Veg Fest, so it's even better than Christmas for me. Thank you VEG CF!

    I loved the science center venue from 2 yrs ago much better because of the shade but the vendors, speakers and demo's were great!!! Fun day indeed!!! Hoping all of the showcased adoptable pets found wonderful homes yesterday!!!

      The science center venue is nice, but the advantages of Festival Park outweigh it by a huge amount. So glad you enjoyed the day!

    It was terrific. Thank you Larry for putting this on. I especially liked the speakers who gave presentations on animal rights issues.

    It was wonderful. I could only stay 2 hours, but would have stayed all day if I wasn't working.

    ok i have never been there so where there be tables of fruits and veg like at farmers markets or more like food demos?

    October 22, 2013

    • Charlie

      It's sort of like a farmers' market, but the focus is not of selling farm food. There will be over 150 vendors, each talking about their organization. There will be 14 restaurants selling great vegan food (cooked and raw). There will be speakers, animal haven, artists corner, yoga, music stage, beer garden, a community garden onsite, and more I'm not even remembering. Here's the website http://www.cfvegfest....­
