The Inaugural Plant-Based Festival will be held at July 28, from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at Gulfstream Park Village in Hallandale Beach, Fla.
Dozens of vendors promoting plant-based/vegan food, cruelty-free body products and clothing, environmentally-friendly products, and wellness will line Champions Plaza. Speakers including Aventura Hospital’s Nutrition and Diabetes Educator Michelle Larea and Commissioner Lima-Taub will be introducing the event and discussing why plant-based diets and lifestyles are positive for human health and the Earth.
The Plant-Based Festival is a free and family-friendly event. Music, kids’ activities, and giveaways will all be available. The City encourages attendees to come ready for fun, but also ready to eat by bringing their own reusable water bottle, cup, or cutlery to cut down on waste. Alternatives will be available, but every little bit helps! Inspired by the City’s Plastic Straw Ban, Gulfstream Village will be giving away stainless-steel reusable straws to the first 300 attendees.
