The Florida Vegan Gourmet Food Fest returns to Tampa Bay this summer kicking off on Sunday, August 1st, 2021!
"This year, we are bringing the vegan food fest to the farm for a rustic one-with-nature experience as we continue to explore new spaces while highlighting the essence of community" says Tash Johnson with City Festivals, the Event Organizers. From Vegan Soul Food to Vegan Caribbean Cuisine, Vegan Latino Dishes, Vegan Italian, Vegan Brazilian, there will be a diverse array of options for every palate! As an educational experience, the fest also welcomes guests to learn from local chefs through cooking demonstrations teaching how to prepare traditional dishes - vegan style, including an American-creole fave, "Jambalaya" presented live on stage by Louisiana Chef Monique of Duality Vegan Cafe.
