Guest Post: Gluten Free Health and Wellness Festival

I have some exciting news! I will be having a few guest posts over the next week or so, contributed by the wonderful Gluten Free Festival team. They are excited to share information about an upcoming Gluten Free Festival in Victoria, along with some special gluten free recipes and even a pair of tickets to access the festival! More info on how to win these tickets at the end of this post. 

The beautiful Victoria, BC is now home to the first-ever Gluten Free Health & Wellness Festival

On February 22 you will be abound with not only amazing gluten-free products but health and wellness vendors, demos and talks. Topics will include: what gluten is doing to your body, how to heal your gut and what products/therapeutics/remedies can help you live a more healthful and thriving life.  

This event is all about community, education and a love of food and health. 

Dr. William Davis, author of The New York Times #1 Betseller, Wheat Bellywill attend the event and give a talk on Saturday evening. 

The festival will take place from 12-5pm at the Victoria Conference Centre and will consist of gluten-free vendors and markets; yoga, food and fermentation demos; talks from nutritionists and global issues on sustainability.

If you're interested in checking it out, you can find tickets on the website here, and connect via Facebook here and Twitter here. And, check out the video

Great local companies are on board including Red Barn MarketsOrigin Bakery and Pacific Rim College

Doesn't that sound fun? I'm looking forward to a gluten free event on the island. I will have some fun recipes from the Gluten Free Health and Wellness Festival's Sponsors in the next week. So keep checking back!

Also, if you would like to win a pair of tickets to the first ever Gluten Free Health and Wellness Festival (and my first ever contest) please leave me a comment on what your favourite place to eat or shop gluten free in Victoria is and why. Or if you've never been to Victoria, tell me why you would like to come to the festival. Please keep in mind that these are tickets for an event in Victoria, BC so only leave a comment if you will be able to travel there.

I will draw a random name, using a random number generator to pick the winner next week on February 12th, 2014. Please make sure you leave your e-mail contact info when leaving a comment so that I can let you know you won. Check back here next week for the winner! Good luck :)

-------- UPDATE -------

I didn't have any takers for my contest. So in hopes that someone would actually like to win tickets, I'm extending this contest until next Wednesday, February 19, 2014 at noon (PST).
