The nation’s premier plant-based food and wine festival is back for its fourth year, bringing hundreds of the hottest plant-based celebrities, chefs, and influencers to Miami for five jam-packed days of events starting Wednesday, November 1st and running through Sunday, November 5th.
Seed Food + Wine Week presented by Whole Foods is a whirlwind of experiences and activities featuring 200+ exhibitors, 10,000+ attendees, 40+ celebrity plant-based chefs, and 30+ vegan athletes, authors, and experts. From celebrity dinners to a 5K to a fashion show — there’s something for every interest, budget, and taste.
“We are ridiculously excited about how Seed has evolved into such a massive, one-of-a-kind community-wide experience,” says Alison Burgos, co-founder. “With competitions, celebrity dinners, fitness events, panels, demos, and meditations, we have a lineup designed to appeal to all people. Anyone and everyone can find something amazing to do, see, and eat.”
Key events include Thursday night’s Plant-Based Burger Battle™, where chefs from across the country engage in a battle royale to impress judges and audience alike; Thursday and Friday’s Seed Summit presented by VegNews, a two-day conference for content creators, bloggers, entrepreneurs and influencers in conscious, sustainable and vegan living; Wednesday’s Food Forward, a one-of-a-kind gathering of food entrepreneurs and influencers dedicated to creating a more sustainable food system; and the unforgettable smorgasbord that is Saturday’s Seed Festival + Tasting Village presented by Whole Foods, where hundreds of vendors showcase their best plant-based food, drinks, attire, cosmetics, and much, much more.
New this year is Friday Night’s Catwalk, a Night of Conscious Fashion, where models will strut the runway showcasing the hottest cruelty-free attire — both casual wear and haute couture, all to tunes curated by DJ Sasha.
“The fashion show is going to showcase an incredible array of cruelty-free fashion, from dresses and designer bags to t-shirts and hoodies,” says co-founder Michelle Gaber.
Events are being hosted at some of Miami’s most incredible venues, including the chic and stylish Sacred Space in Wynwood, and the unforgettable, art-adorned Jungle Plaza in the Design District.
