Chicago's Gluten & Allergen Free Expo - Are You Going?

I hope so! You don't want to miss it.  It's less than two weeks away - April 20th & 21st! I'm heading back for the 2nd time. You can read about my first GFAF Expo from 2011 - Part I and Part II. I was ready to go back in 2012 but morning sickness had other plans in mind...   so I'm very excited to be able to head back this year.

The two day extravaganza started back in 2008 by     Jen Cafferty, a nationally recognized expert on cooking and living gluten and allergen free. The GFAF Expo soon doubled in size, doubled again and has since tripled in size! With over 7,000 attendees per expo, the expo has expanded across the United States!  With 5 different city locations,                 
the GFAF Expo is expanding and coming to a town near you, if it hasn't already!

So what makes the GFAF Expo so fabulous you ask?? It has everything!

Vendor Fair - 120 + Vendors providing information about their products as well as samples, samples, samples!

Classes - Free of charge w/ your admission to the Vendor Fair. Over 20 classes and seminars available! Interested in one of these topics: Eating Out and Travel, Infertility, Healing a child w/ Autism, Juicing, Cooking gluten-free for your family - check out the schedule and make sure to arrive early to get a seat!

Products - Hard to find allergen free products under your noise!

Book Fair - Meet the authors of some of the best gluten-free and allergen cookbooks and get a signed copy!

My favorite part of the GFAF Expo, is meeting people from the gluten-free world! I still keep in touch with those I meet in 2011. I love hearing others stories and what inspires them on their gluten-free journey. Meeting other parents of children with celiac disease is always comforting - we aren't alone on this journey and either is Jack!
