We are happy to announce that Triumph Dining will be appearing at The Gluten & Allergen Free Expo, presented by Living Without Magazine, this September in Dallas, Texas.  If you’re planning on going to this event make sure you stop by our booth and say hello to us!

The Gluten & Allergen Free Expo Vendor Fair takes place on Saturday and Sunday, 8th and 9th of September, at The Westin Park Central in Dallas, Texas. The cost to attend the event is $20 for adults and $5 for children. All of the vendors at the expo will be 100% percent gluten free, including us!

The expo welcomes those from the gluten-free community, autism community and allergen-free communities.  This is a community event where everyone on a restricted diet is welcome and will find many items that meet their dietary needs.

By purchasing your tickets online, you won’t need to wait in line at the event. Also, if you want to avoid the large crowds, you can purchase an early-admission ticket.  For a few extra dollars you can beat the crowds and arrive an hour early.

All participants will be given a bag to carry their items from the event and a program book to take notes about their favorite products.

The Pictou County Celiac Support Group have donated $500 to their local food bank so that anyone who has celiac disease and who visits the food bank will be able to get the safe, gluten-free products they need.
