I’ll see you at the Celiac Disease Foundation’s Annual Education Conference and Food Faire this Saturday, May 19th. Should be fun to reconnect with my west coast peeps!

Get ready for the first L. Lodico Walk this weekend on Sunday, May 20th, in our own backyard!  The walk is being hosted by the Long Island Celiac Sprue Support Group #23 at Little Bay Park in Queens. Registration begins at 9am and the walk ends at 12pm.

Puff & Pao is not open, but don’t worry, they are just relocating. We’ll tell you where as soon as we know.

Save the date for the Colin Leslie Walk in Rye, NY, October 14th.  Last year, Colin raised $62,471.73!!!  Whoa!

The next NFCA Cooking Spree will take place in The City of Brotherly Love on Saturday, June 23rd.

Richmond hosts the Gluten Intolerance Group Annual Education Conference, June 7th-10th.

If you know of any other events, please feel free to post the info as a comment to this entry. Thanks!

    In Tucson, Arizona:

    ANNUAL FOOD FAIRE! Saturday, May 19th, 9-11:30 a.m.

    Come and sample lots of different gluten-free food, some of it will be new, most donated by vendors from around the country. Meet new members — many who have come as a result of our efforts at the Pima County Fair.

    Come meet author LynnRae Ries (What, No Wheat?, Waiter, is there Wheat in my Soup? and Delicious Gluten-Free, Wheat-Free Breads) who will give us an update on what is happening in her life and work. She will also be bringing some wonderful baked goods from her bakery Gluten-Free Creations in Phx. Bring your checkbook or wallet, folks, her breads are so worth buying! Bring your copies of her books to sign, or buy one there.

    Also meet (and hear) CSA Executive Chef, Aaron Flores, who will be overseeing all the food at the Annual Conference in September. Aaron will be here in Tucson to give us a preview about food at the Conference, as well as to speak to local restaurant owners/chefs in preparation for the deluge of celiacs expected to congregate here for the conference. Aaron is very entertaining and extremely knowledgeable about GF cooking (naturally!).

    The FOOD FAIRE will be held in the Oasis Auditorium located on the campus of Christ Community Church, 7801 E Kenyon (NW Corner of Pantano and Kenyon, between 22nd & Broadway). There will be signs posted to direct you to the building. The best parking can be found if you enter along the north entrance to the church, continue along the hedge past the first parking lot and building (main Sanctuary), then there will be spaces facing south. The meeting will be in the octagonal building directly in front of these parking spaces. There is also plentiful parking in the back (west) lot.

    Diana- Thank you for posting about the CSA event! I knew about it, but couldn’t find a link for it when writing this. AND, I totally back you up about buying some of Lynn Rae’s bread!!

    I’m thinking about attending the Richmond conference, but I haven’t yet decided if I can really squeeze it in. Wish you the best on your presentation!

    Hi chicks! A DC-based fellow celiac who loves your site and reads it all the time. I’m just back from Barbados and wouldn’t you know, I found a GF cafe! I didn’t find it anywhere on the web before I left, so I thought I would send it out so other travelers know they can get great GF in at least one of the Caribbean islands! My blog, 14thstgirl.blogspot.com, has directions and a quick write-up…
