South Florida Vegan Fest 2016 Blog Title

I am beyond excited that a vegan lifestyle festival will by coming to South Florida in August!  Keep reading to learn about the South Florida Vegan Fest!

I happened to stumble upon the South Florida Vegan Fest as I scrolled down my Facebook feed, and stopped in my tracks!  What???  Hold on!!!  A festival dedicated to all things vegan?!?!  I’m totally going! Then I thought to myself, “I really think my readers would want to know about this!  Heck, if I hadn’t of seen it on FB I would have no idea!  So hence this post 👯

South Florida Vegan Fest will be taking place on August 27, 2016 from 10am to 5pm in the Tamarac Community Center located at 8601 W. Commercial Boulevard, Tamarac, FL 33321.

Did I mention this was an absolutely FREE Vegan Event?!?!
