Foodies—especially those who don’t eat meat or dairy products—might enjoy the SoFla Vegfest, in War Memorial Auditorium, Saturday, Dec. 3, from noon to 6 p.m.

Tickets to the inaugural vegan festival are $15 for adults, while children 12 and younger are free.

SoFla Vegfest will feature plant-based foods and meals, supplements and skin care products (all cruelty-free) by more than 125 local and national vendors. The price of a ticket will buy you access to food and drink samples, a happy hour wine sampling, live music, children’s activities, cooking demonstrations and more, according to an event press release.

Strict vegans won’t have to worry about where the food comes from. Everything is guaranteed ethical and 100 percent vegan, according to the release.

Among the vendors participating: West Palm Beach-based Hippocrates Health Institute; One Kombucha; DeliverLean food delivery service; and a vegan twist on grandma’s recipes by Amy’s Lil’ Chunks of Love. Orangetheory Fitness also will be on hand to offer innovative workouts, as will vendors like Mercy for Animals, an international non-profit advocating against the cruelty to farm animals.

To buy tickets or find out more, go to War Memorial Auditorium is at 800 NE 8th St, Fort Lauderdale.
