At this event we will have
Adult, Teen, Children, and Parent and Tot programs
We will begin the day with a vendor fair.

Children’s programs will include hands on activities such as a Bake and Take with Food-Tek, and animals that eat gluten free from the Akron Zoo.

The event does not include lunch. We did this to keep cost at a mimimun. Please plan accordingly. The cafeteria at Akron Children's will have both a gluten free entree and a gluten free salad special available for purchase the day of the event. There will also be vendor samples available during the vendor fair portion of the event.
