The Woodstock Fruit Festival is proud to extend an invitation to Ellen DeGeneres to attend the Festival this summer, which will be held in Diamond Point, New York from Sunday, August 18th through Sunday, August 25th. DeGeneres may best be known as a talk show host, but she is dedicated to helping spread the message of how important a plant-based diet is for our health and for the well-being of animals. She made the decision to follow a vegan diet after educating herself through factory farming documentaries and books, and she encourages people to think about the impact of their decisions before they make them. Michael Arnstein, founder of The Woodstock Fruit Festival, also believes in the same message of educating people about the benefits of eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Arnstein created this Festival with the intention of bringing people together so that they could learn about eating a healthful diet and form long-lasting friendships. ‘The Woodstock Fruit Festival is a fantastic way to learn about the benefits of a predominantly fruit-based diet through lectures, discussions and food prep classes, among other activities. We think that Ms. DeGeneres would benefit greatly by attending the Festival this August, and we know that she could share what she has learned with us as well. We would be thrilled if she came to our event!’ states Kristina Peduto, Marketing and Public Relations Specialist for The Woodstock Fruit Festival. Arnstein’s efforts are paying off, as the Festival continues to grow bigger year after year. The Festival is now is its third year with the largest group of attendees projected at well over 700.
The Woodstock Fruit Festival strives to address the many health advantages of eating fruit-based as well as environmental benefits. The festival strongly believes that one of the best things you can do for your own health and the health of the Planet is to eat more fruit! Some of the speakers for the 2013 festival include well known raw vegan athletes, and health pioneers: best-selling health author Dr. Douglas N. Graham, champion trail runner Tim Van Orden, founders of one of the popular raw food websites 30BananasADay.com, YouTube favorite Dan ‘The Man’ McDonald, Tony Wright who is an author in the evolutionary scientific community, internationally-published fruitarian author Anne Osborne, and expert on children’s diet and nutrition Karen Ranzi. Festival speaker and 30+ year veteran fruitarian gymnast Robert Lockhart says ‘we live in a world where the human form is taking on ever-increasing dimensions and obesity, heart disease, and cancer rates are growing at alarming rates. The need for a healthy, ethical, and sustainable diet has never been higher. If you want to die young but as late as possible, embrace the Fruitarian Lifestyle!’
