The 2nd annual Woodstock Fruit Festival will take place in the Southern Adirondack Mountains in New York State.
The week long event will be the world’s largest and most influential fruitarian festival; bringing together over 500 fruit-based eaters and the top experts on fruit and fruit diets.
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.
Woodstock strives to address the many advantages of eating fruit-based; embracing health, ethical, 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!
One of the foremost proponents of the Fruitarian movement is company CEO, New York resident and elite athlete Michael Arnstein.
Arnstein says, of his reasons for founding the Woodstock Fruit Festival, “Obesity, disease, sedentary lifestyles, these are the modern day plagues of our society. It is literally a life or death situation for the human species. A fruit based diet provides peak sustainable health, a fountain of youth, a return to nature. The goal of the festival is to spread the wealth of health through a fruit based diet.”
Arnstein brought his vision of uniting fruit lovers from all over the globe to fruition when the first Woodstock Fruit Festival debuted to great acclaim in 2011.
This yearly event brings together some of the world’s best-known raw vegan athletes, and health pioneers. Speakers at last year’s event included best-selling health author Dr. Douglas N. Graham; champion trail runner Tim Van Orden;, Harley Johnstone and Freelee Love founders of one of the most popular raw food websites 30BananasADay.com; YouTube favorite Dan ‘The Man’ McDonald, Tony Wright; cutting edge author in the evolutionary scientific community; internationally-published fruitarian author Anne Osborne; and expert on children’s diet and nutrition Karen Ranzi.
Woodstock 2012 will give attendees the opportunity to meet face-to-face the pioneers of the Fruitarian Movement, attend lectures, participate in fitness classes, unwind with yoga, enjoy watersports, try out tremendous trail runs, make use of amazing athletic facilities, and feast on some of the best quality organic fruit in the United States.
Encouraging families to attend is at the heart of the Woodstock Fruit Festival’s philosophy. Families are warmly welcomed, and all children under ten can attend the event totally free of charge. Woodstock 2012 aims to provide a wide range of artistic and sporting activities for children of all ages.
The Woodstock Fruit Festival exists to connect all those interested in a raw vegan fruit-based diet, to share information, inspiration, and ideas, and to promote better health to humanity.
As one of last year’s speakers, veteran fruitarian and gymnast Robert Lockhart, says "If you want to die young, but as late as possible, then you need to embrace the Fruitarian Lifestyle!”
