GFAF Expo This weekend in San Diego (Feb 11-12,2017)








The Gluten Free & Allergen Friendly Expo (GFAF Expo) started back in 2007 in one city and now has expanded to eight cities.  The GFAF Expos are the largest and fastest growing special diet consumer events in the US. At the event some of the things you can expect to see are over 100 vendors showcasing their products, samples of products and informative classes related to living a gluten free and allergen friendly lifestyle.



To kick off 2017 the first GFAF Expo is in San Diego, California (February 11-12, 2017) at the Del Mar Fairgrounds Wyland Center. This will be my very first time attending the GFAF Expo. Besides getting to meet vendors and get samples, I am most excited about the opportunity to attend classes and listen to the guest speakers.
