Mother’s Day weekend marks the return of the 6th annual EPIC Sustainable Living Expo at the Vancouver Convention Centre West. This is Western Canada’s largest sustainable lifestyle showcase, giving eco-conscious consumers a taste of the very best in organic, local, and sustainable goods and services, plus some of the smartest trends supporting a healthy lifestyle.
Over 300 eco-friendly exhibitors will be on hand showcasing the latest in high quality, sustainable products, services, and ideas – including over 100 new exhibitors. This year’s theme, “All Things Food – Local, Organic, and Healthy” will give attendees the chance to explore everything from cooking demos and composting to organic produce and fair trade products.
The EPICurean Food Corner is onsite to sample an assortment of the best organic beer, wine, and gourmet treats while showcasing locally-produced, seasonal, and organic foods. Take in new recipes and techniques at the Whole Foods EPICurean Stage, where chefs will dish up delicious samples and cooking demos galore.
Craving more? Drop by one of the hundreds of displays for everything from food to fashion, weddings, home technology and décor, health and beauty, and transportation. EPIC Vancouver offers something for everyone – including some great contests and giveaways.
Stop by the Main Stage for inspiring presentations from leading sustainability experts, green gurus, and special guests, then head over to the Fair Trade Pavilion to get information and purchase products that support producers in developing nations.
Eco-chic attendees will love the Fashion Marketplace and EPICatwalk. Here you’ll find the latest earth-friendly fashions and sustainable styles in clothing and accessories from over 40 exhibitors.
In addition, guests considering a greener ride will enjoy exploring the complete lineup of Toyota and luxury Lexus hybrids on display at Ride ‘n Drive – they’ll even get to test drive one.
The EPIC KidZone offers future eco-enthusiasts a chance to demo the latest eco-toys, and take part in hands-on, kid-friendly activities with the Granville Island Toy Company.
