“The event that aims to promote raw food in the D.C. area, its health benefits, environmental advantages, its fantastic taste,” spokeswoman Margaux Delotte-Bennett said.
The festival is broken down into three sections: uncooked vegetable and fruit tastings, the benefits of a raw food diet and fitness and gardening.
The event will have five talks on the health benefits of raw food and how to properly prepare it. There’s also an Afro-Brazilian martial art demonstration from the International Capoeira Angola Foundation.
Guests can vote on their favorite juice, sweet and savory foods and enter raffles for classes and dinners prepared by chefs, who cook raw vegan dishes, too.
Tickets, which are $25 for adults and $20 for children, get attendees $15 worth of food and entrance to the talks and other activities.
