This will allow you to get started right away and make the most of your event. The main event will take place at Massey Park at 8am on March 4th, 2017. For more information please visit www.KACB.org

Gainesville VegFest is a celebration of a healthy, sustainable and compassionate way of life. Our hope is for people of all ages to have fun and learn about the many ways to improve health, lessen our impact on the environment and reduce animal suffering. This free, family-friendly event will include speakers, veg vendors, exhibitors, educational booths, music, children’s activities and more.
Here’s an excellent opportunity for local vendors to showcase their products, services, merchandise and vegan food to hundreds of vegans, vegetarians, conscientious consumers, fitness lovers and people interested in living a compassionate and sustainable lifestyle.
VegFests have grown to great heights in host cities such as Orlando, Jacksonville, Tallahassee, Tampa and Cocoa. Our goal is to get Gainesville on the vegfest map of Florida!
Come join us!

We would like you to help us plant some trees.
Solar Impact, Inc. and Swamp Head Brewery have teamed up again to make Tree Fest, an annual event hosted at Swamp Head brewery around Earth Day and Arbor Day each year.
Tree Fest will celebrate the environment by raising money to plant trees with the Alachua Conservation Trust in an event that will feature food trucks, family-friendly activities, and of course, Swamp Head beer.
5 trees will be planted for every beer purchased during Tree Fest, 20 trees for every Tree Fest T-Shirt bought, and all sponsor donations will increase our tree planting.
The trees are one year old longleaf pines and will be planted by the Alachua Conservation Trust at the Little Orange Creek Preserve in Hawthorne, Florida.
We are grateful for the many people and companies that are coming together to sponsor and participate in this event.
Tree Fest 2017 will be from 1-11pm Saturday, April 15th. It is free to attend. We plant 5 trees for every beer sold during Tree Fest, 20 trees for every Tree Fest T-Shirt bought, and all money raised from sponsorships will directly increase the number of trees we can plant.
1-5pm is our family & community time. Bouncin' Big will have free bounce houses for kids, and our community partners will be tabling and offering some activites. Tabling ends and bounce houses shut down at 5p.
Starting at 5pm we will have live music going the rest of the event.
Food will be available (vendors TBD).

You can help! Every day, local businesses and households throw away countless items which still have educational value to them. Overruns and no longer needed supplies are just a few of the materials sent to the landfill instead of being reused. Imagine those items in the hands of eager students! They become useful supplies to help make math, science, and language arts concepts real.
