The Woodstock Fruit Festival… Can’t Miss Raw Food Live Event!

Filed under Announcements by Frederic Patenaude

I’ve been involved in the raw food movement for over 15 years. Years ago, there was a thriving time of raw food events and festivals of all kinds.

Then over the last few years there has been a sort of “dead zone.”

Not many BIG live raw food events and festivals have taken place.

And for the few that did take place, I couldn’t really recommend them because they were all about consuming more supplements, cacao and superfoods, and not about eating REAL raw foods.

Now that’s all changed with an amazing festival that will probably be the biggest raw food event of all times, and this one is really promoting the RIGHT kind of raw food diet.

The Woodstock Fruit Festival 2012 will take place on August 20 – August 28 in beautiful upstate NY.

People from ALL over the world will be coming to this festival.

Including lots of long-timers and experts such as:

– Dr. Douglas Graham – an athlete and a raw vegan since 1978, an author
of 80/10/10 Diet book

Dr. Robert Lockhart – raw vegan for about 30 years

– Anne Osborne ā€“ fruitarian for over 20 years, who brought up 2 children
on the fruitarian diet, an author of the book Fruitarianism ā€“ The Path to

Dan McDonald – raw vegan for about 10 years, youtube channel –

Harley Johnstone aka Durianrider – low fat raw vegan, endurance

Don Bennett – low fat raw vegan for over 18 years, the director of the
Health 101 Institute

Michael Arnstein aka The Fruitarian – low fat raw vegan, competitive
ultra distance runner

Tony Wright – raw vegan and human consciousness researcher, the
co-author of Left in the Dark book presenting an outline of his theory
about human brain owing a part of its extraordinary development to the
biochemistry of a fruit diet.

Dr. Samuel Mielcarski – low fat raw vegan for over 12 years, licensed
physical therapist.

I think this is something you definitely do not want to miss. The energy of a festival like the Woodstock Fruit Festival is amazing. You’ll come back home reenergized, with new insights that could change your life.

    Sounds great, looks like a great crowd, man would I like to get back into the events, stuck in TX these days.

  4. Marina says:

    Would someone be so kind to tell me how to pay the festival. I cannot find the account number or instructions. And I applied, but they did not send me the instructions.

    I can’t open the page where it says more info.
    How much is it & where is the address to get there?

    Sounds like the perfect raw fooders paradise. .

  8. Hello and thank you, Frederic, for your announcement of the next great raw food festival. Of course, it is being held in the USA and I am afraid I cannot go but I wish you and your company my best. Thanks again. Ada

    Thanks for the links Frederic.

    But, I just spent a couple of hours going through the process of joining up and then filling out the forms – and I’ve clicked every option and read virtually everything on the site, including the blog questions/comments, FAQs etc – and I’ve also gone to all the links that are on your page – but I still can’t find anywhere to pay!

    I’ve emailed them, but I want to get the money to them before the end of Jan (only two days left) when the price goes up again – so if anyone here has been successful in paying, can you please let me know how you did it??

    To Lou, I know it’s quite a distance/cost for those of us from Australia. I really hope you can rustle up sufficient funds/free time to make it…
