For the last two years, I’ve had the great pleasure of attending the Gluten Free & Allergen Friendly Expo in Dallas, Texas. It has been one of the biggest highlights of my year as there are SO many great vendors, speakers and resources.
When I was first diagnosed with gluten and other food issues, I felt completely lost. In my small area, the products available were limited. I began doing so much research online and stumbled across some information about this expo. I checked it out and knew I HAD to be involved! I’ve been able to bring back some valuable knowledge and resources as well as products, companies and more that all relate to gluten-free and allergy-friendly living.
This year, the GFAF Expo is being held on Saturday, September 10 and Sunday, September 11 from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. The event is located at the Dallas Market Center (2200 Stemons Freeway, Dallas, TX 75207). Click here to get tickets in advance!!

Even if you are not in the Dallas area, this is an event worth traveling to. This year, we are even taking the kids so they can take part in the fun! It’s seriously a fun, friendly atmosphere.
The event is also very good about catering to all food allergies. They have a nut-free section and each vendor table is marked with allergens that are present in their products/booths. Easy to find what you are looking for!
