The Gluten Free Expo is Back!

Last year, our family attended the Gluten Free Allergy Friendly Expo and had a great time. We're planning on going again!

This year  GFAF is coming back to Schaumburg Saturday April 22 and Sunday April 23, and it's going to be just as busy and even better than last year.  BUY TICKETS NOW.

GFAF is the largest expo of Gluten Free and Allergy Free foods in the country, and Chicago is now one of 7 cities they visit on an annual basis. This is their tenth year coming to Chicago!

While at GFAF, you can meet over 100 exhibitors, test gluten free samples, purchase all kinds of items at a discount,  meet other people who have similar food restrictions, and find out more about eating Gluten-free and allergy free.
