The GO Veggie! team is shining its spoons, gathering its guitar picks, and packing the coolers with products in preparation of this weekend’s Newport Folk Festival, the legendary music showcase at Fort Adams State Park in Newport, Rhode Island. This is the first year that GO Veggie! has partnered with the event and we are so pleased that they are letting us jam with the more than 45 amazing musical acts in an unbelievable setting.
GO Veggie! is involved in the event in a myriad of ways and we invite you to stop by and say hello at our tent during the event. If some free samples of delicious snacks are not enough to lure you in, maybe our “Pick a Winner” giveaway will. On Saturday and Sunday, stop by our tent to select a guitar pick out of a bowl and claim your prize – every pick is a winner, while supplies last! Some are good for vouchers for free product or insulated lunch bags, and within those picks is one grand prize winner for a Deering Banjo (valued at $499) donated from the good folks running the event. And of course the branded guitar pick is all yours to keep too – can always use another one of those, right?
Come and Get Some! Under our tent, located on the quad near the main stage, we will be serving up samples of a variety of our GO Veggie! products. Check out the snacking schedule:
Saturday, July 27 and Sunday, July 28 11am – 7pm Grilled Cheese Sandwiches featuring GO Veggie! Lactose Free Slices in Cheddar and Pepper Jack or Dairy Free, Vegan Shreds in Mozzarella and Mexican on Eva Ruth’s Gluten Free Sandwich Bread
Making the Wait just a Little Sweeter No one really likes to wait in line, but when it’s waiting for the gates to open on Saturday and Sunday, you are sure to work up an appetite from the sheer excitement to see your favorite bands. Don’t worry – we’ve got your back and will be working to get you some super breakfast delights. Look for our team handing out Eva Ruth’s Mini Pumpkin Muffins topped with GO Veggie! Dairy Free, Vegan Classic Plain Cream Cheese frosting. And while Eva Ruth’s is a lovely little Middleton, RI gluten free bakery, they ship nationwide!
Grown in Rhode Island As a company based in North Kingstown, RI, we could not think of a better way to support the event than being the exclusive underwriter of the musicians that are part of Newport Homegrown, a series of local amazing performers organized by the local bluegrass band The Low Anthem on Friday, July 26 at the Museum at Fort Adams. A portion of our sponsorship goes directly to the bands including Roz Raskin and the Rice Cakes, Last Good Tooth, Death Vessel and Vudu Sister.
We will have our tent outside the venue doing some sampling of GO Veggie! Dairy Free, Vegan Cream Cheese in Classic Plain and Chive & Garlic served with Late July Organic Sea Salt by the Seashore Multigrain Snack Chips.
