Gluten-Free Food Allergy Fest May 20-21

The Gluten-Free Food Allergy Fest (GFFA Fest) will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., May  20 to 21, at the Minneapolis Convention Center, offering a weekend full of food, presenters and live cooking demos. This is the third year the GFFA Fest has been in Minneapolis.

Highlights include food tasting and education from a wide range of exhibitors, many of them local businesses. Presenters will focus on gluten-free cooking and education, including information on delicious desserts and how to go gluten-free without breaking the bank or giving up flavor.

“Consumer shows are a natural extension of our brand and the services we provide to the celiac and food allergic community,” says Tom Canfield, vice-president of Gluten Free & More magazine (formerly Living Without). “The shows offer consumers a fun way to interact one-on-one with manufacturers and vendors, to sample products and learn more about allergy-friendly and gluten-free goods and services.”

The event is part of a nationwide series that travels to six cities throughout the U.S. Natural Awakenings Twin Cities will have a booth at the event—stop by and visit.

Admission: One-day adult $15; Two-day adult $25; One-day military and seniors $12; Children $5; 5-years-old and under, free. Location: 1301 Second Ave. S., Minneapolis. For more information, visit
