The Woodstock Fruit Festival is proud to extend an invitation to Bill Maher to attend the Festival this August. In addition to having a talk show and being a comedian, Maher is dedicated to environmental, health and animal issues. He is also in favor of PETA’s effort to help animals, and he supported their message by hosting a benefit at The Comedy Store to raise awareness about treating other creatures with respect and dignity. Michael Arnstein, founder of the Festival, tries to promote that same message by holding a yearly event that educates people about how the choices that they make have an effect on our planet and the animals that live on it. This is done through lectures, classes and group discussions. Arnstein believes that he and Maher also share a similar view about health and the benefits of eating a healthy diet. ‘Bill Maher is never a shy individual when it comes to his beliefs, and we couldn’t agree more with his compassion and health-related choices. We’d be very proud to have Mr. Maher at The Woodstock Fruit Festival. We’re sure he could use a break from his very busy media schedule’ states Arnstein.
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!’
