Today we want to officially announce that the Gluten Free Food Allergy Fest has officially come to an end. We will no longer be coming to a city near you. 😢 We had a blast serving the #glutenfree community for 6 years but now we must say goodbye.

We want to give a special thanks to all of the exhibitors and sponsors who supported our show over the years, especially those who had a presence at every show. We couldn’t have done it without all of you.

We also would like to thank all of our attendees, especially those who returned year after year. We always felt great after the many thanks you all gave us for putting on the shows.

Lastly we would like to thank all of the facilities, decorators, volunteers, bloggers, presenters and all else who have worked beside us to put on these amazing shows! We enjoyed working with all of you! #Thanks #GFFAFest ✌🏽

Gluten-Free Food Allergy FestThe answer to why - Our parent company recently sold Gluten Free & More magazine to Simply Gluten Free Magazine. Simply was not interested in continuing the shows as they are already partnered with another show. We then decided it was best to vacate the gluten-free market all together since we no longer would have a magazine backing us.

So sad. Last year was my first year since Celiac and I truly had a great and stress free time trying foods. It was like magic for me. So sad. 😣

Is the magazine going away too? My celiac group has never really liked simply gluten free mag. That’s why I ask for my grocery to hold me a copy they go so fast

How disappointing! My son who has celiac’s called the fest a “holiday” and loved being able to try everything! Hope a new one will replace it.

Wish I had known about the fest years ago, when I was struggling to figure out what I could eat. I've been to the Minneapolis one the past 2 years and really enjoyed it! Sorry to see you go :(
