With the Central Florida Veg Fest approaching its 10th anniversary, it’s going to be a pretty big dill. If you carrot all about veganism or healthy living, then this is the event for you. The Veg Fest has only gotten bigger each year, so please, romaine calm when you get to the Orlando Festival Park and see the plethora of vendor tents and food stands. Local favorites like Dandelion Communitea Café and Drunken Monkey Coffee Bar will be on the premises with their delicious vegan dishes. Veg Fest will also have many musical acts dropping the beet all day, such as Raspberry Pie who at 1 p.m. will be “laying the dunk on some sweet, sweet funk!” When you’ve hit maximum belly capacity, take a break from eating and catch one of Veg Fest’s education programs or take a quick yoga class with Warrior One Power Yoga. This festival is going to be huge, so get ready to turnip, veg out and leave in peas. Kale yeah!
