The advertisement says to think of Food Day as an Earth Day for Food. It is touted as the largest event of its kind in the U.S., but most local fall festival goers just see it as a fun day to eat good, wholesome food, listen to music and learn a few thing about organic gardening and healthy cooking.
There is something for all ages and a lot of fun events going on within the park and Food Day is actually a national celebration to promote healthy, affordable and sustainable food for all people.
Well Fed Magazine is hosting the event which will take place from 11- 5 on Saturday, October 26.
There will be a Farmer's Market, handmade items for sale, vendors and exhibitors offering all sorts of free give-aways and classes.
The Savannah Bicycle Campaign and Savannah Striders will be there offering tips on healthy living. You can even ride your bike to the event and receive valet parking in a safe location.
You can take a cooking class, learn to use cloth diapers, listen to a new band every hour, go on a scavenger hunt, compete with your friends in a hula hoop competition and enjoy a really fun day.
It's a great way to get healthier and enjoy foods that are good for you and for the environment. Ditch the Halloween Candy and opt for healthy vegan cookies. You can even learn more about healthy food choices for your pets.
Bring a canopy tent, a lounge chair or blanket and enjoy the day. The weather should be cool and sunny and dogs are always welcome in the parks. As a matter of fact there is actually a dog park located on the facilities and plenty of free parking and open bathrooms.
See you there!
