Upcoming Gluten-Free Events This Season

By November 26, 2013News & Events

Holiday season is just around the corner, and we all know this time of year is littered with events! There are work events, events with friends and family and as it turns out, there are a number of gluten-free events upcoming as well! So we thought we’d take a moment to highlight some of the ones we’ve heard about, so they don’t get lost in the mix and never make it into your calendars, that seem to be filling up oh so rapidly these days. We know that this season can leave us all a little tight on time and on cash, but a lot of these events are very cost conscious and should be absolute gems you might not want to miss! So have a peruse through, and see what tickles your fancy….

And keep your eyes peeled for us, as we hope to be at most of these! If you find us, come say hi and pick up a free GFYYC sticker! (We keep them in our handbags… hehe.)

When: January 16, 2014, 7-9 PM (once we’re all getting back into our regular routines and have our list of resolutions hung optimistically on the fridge, might be a good time to get some new information and tools on living gluten-free in YYC?)
