This festival is a celebration of compassionate and healthy food choices. It's a free, day-long event featuring great local food and positive action.

Our biggest dream is to host the very first Northeast Florida Veg Fest in Jacksonville, Florida (a town not well-known for its veg-fare). The goal seems small, but the mission is much bigger. We have a great group of people and businesses devoted to conscious living, all we need is a way to bring this community together and share a meaningful message of harmony, respect and love to the rest of the city.

Our Veg Fest will highlight these concepts by serving delicious veg-friendly cuisine; entertaining with live local music; hosting presentations from top-rated speakers from across the country; screening two life-changing movies, THE COVE and FORKS OVER KNIVES and highlighting various animal-rescue and earth-friendly organizations...all FREE to the public.

We will be able to reach out to a city that is #1 in the highest concentration of fast food restaurants, and provide residents resources and tools to start living a healthier, more fulfilled lifestyle. This festival will be an amazing opportunity to establish community support and to lean on each other throughout the days and months to come.

We are determined and ready to show Northeast Florida new, sustainable ideas and products that can be passed along to their families and incorporated into their daily lives. All we're missing is the financial backing to bring it all together.
