GIG of Long Island Gluten-Free Vendor Fair and Fundraiser- April 27-28, 2013!


I’m SO excited for this year’s GIG of Long Island Gluten-Free Vendor Fair and Fundraiser!
This year the fair will be held on April 27th and 28th- same location- the IEBW in Hauppauge (see details below).  Last year I attended the fair for about an hour because it was ON my delivery due date!  I was determined to at least make it to the event as a consumer because I knew I would not be able to volunteer.  I walked around (ok, I waddled around) and was able to catch up with many friends and vendors that I had not seen in a while which was great! I took home a bunch of samples, purchased a bunch of new products, as well as some of my favorites.  It's great to have all of my shopping needs in one place! 

Admission to the fair is $10, but if you attend on Saturday, you will receive a $5 off coupon to return Sunday.  Now, why would you want to attend for two days?  Because that is where you will get the most samples!  The first day, you should go, so you can see all the new products, get the samples before the “in demand” ones run out, then return on Sunday at the end of the day, and sometimes the vendors who do not want to lug the samples back with them to the stores will give them out (don’t’ all show up though because then there will be less for me- lol)!  There are also some vendors that only come for one of the days- and you wouldn’t want to miss anyone!  Also, since a lot of restaurants do show up you can basically eat enough samples as lunch for the 2nd day for your $5 admission charge!
This year I’m sure the event will be just as much of a success as it has been in years past.  You do NOT want to miss it!
