I’m so excited that the annual Gluten & Allergen Free Expo is coming to town!!!
SAVE THE DATE! Sat-Sun, November 15-16, 9am-3pm.
I went last year and you can read that post here. Basically, the expo is just amazing!! I love seeing so many vendors in one place that “get” food allergies. I found many of them to be knowledgeable about our non-top 8 allergy (sesame). I came home with coupons, swag and samples for us to enjoy. Thanks to this expo, Miss Watermelon now has a gluten free bread to eat that doesn’t taste like a dry sponge! We love Scharr bread at this house! Major yummy allergy friendly food brands you may be familiar with will be there too like Udi’s and Enjoy Life. I was happy to learn of local bakeries providing specialty breads like paleo diet breads (dairy, grain, and gluten free) . I flitted around like a kid in a candy store ! I think you will too! They also have speakers offering educational sessions and authors present. If you’re new to food allergies or have been doing this gig a long time I highly recommend you check it out! Early bird priced tickets are on sale right now so I recommend getting one in the next several days before the price goes up! You can click here and take advantage of that now 🙂 You will save 8 dollars on the ticket price now until October 31. 12.00 for adults. 2.00 for kids. Enter the code EARLYBIRD at checkout. The day of the event tickets are available for 20.00 for adults.
Also, I almost forgot… I found a very cute epi pen and auvi q carrier that we bought at the expo last year! I hope to get another one this year!
I’m an official blogger for the event this year which means I’m going to do my best to bring more people into the little slice of food allergy heaven- Let’s all show up and encourage them to keep this good deed going!! What about you? What are you most looking forward to about the expo? Tell us below in the comments 🙂
