Heading to the Nourished Festival

Eating gluten free is my life. And sometimes I get tired of the same old food, so I get really excited when there is an opportunity to try new things.  And I get even more excited when it’s an event I can go to where I can eat EVERYTHING safely!  And when I am an official blogger for the event, that adds another level of excitement!

Did I say I was excited? 🙂

I’ve attended this festival in the past and always come home with great new food options.  This year, they have a new name- Nourished Festival- and they have added zones that feature paleo, keto and plant-based, along with their nut-free zones.  The entire event is gluten free, so you will find that at EVERY booth.

Can you tell how excited I was when I last attended?  I was very sad to miss the last two years due to a back injury and then illness.  I will have to recreate this picture with the new hashtags!

Go check out the website here: Nourished Festival (affiliate link) and scroll through all the exhibitors coming to this event.  I am excited to see a lot of new brand names. I love being able to talk to representatives from the companies so I can get any questions answered that I might have.

Here are some of my tips if you are coming:

  1. Bring a backpack to store all your yummy buys and samples in
  2. Be prepared for a CROWD!  This is a very well tended event and it is busy!
  3. If you can avoid bringing a stroller, I would!  The one year I brought my daughter I was so glad I had her in a carrier and not a stroller.  It’s hard to navigate the crowd with a stroller.
  4. Bring cash so you don’t have to pass up on buying from an exhibitor that may not be able to accept cards.
  5. Have fun!

If you plan to go, let me know so we can meet!

Want to win a free pass to go?  Leave me a comment below letting me know what food you are hoping to find.  I would love to find a gluten free Boston creme donut to eat.  I haven’t had one of those since going GF and they were my favorite!!

    Love the tips. I’ve been meaning to go with Lucas the last couple years, but things kept coming up. My plan is to actually make it this year! We’ll have to look for you there. 🙂

    I totally forgot to leave a reply with what food I hope to find. Lol.
    Lucas loves the danish coffee cakes and kringles. It would be awesome to find a gluten-free version there.
