This expo is a must for anyone living gluten free

Australia's largest, dedicated gluten free expo returns on the weekend on 6 and 7 October! Tickets are on sale and children under 16 receive FREE entry.

Presented by Coeliac Victoria and Tasmania, this is the country's premier gluten free event. Over two jam-packed days, Melbourne Exhibition & Convention Centre will play host to over 80 handpicked exhibitors, showcasing the latest and tastiest of everything gluten free!

This is your one-stop destination to turn your food world upside-down with product tastings, show specials and the inside track on what's new in gluten free!

The Gluten Free Food Precinct will also be serving up freshly made and delicious gluten free food for those living with coeliac disease, managing food intolerances or simply choosing to go gluten free. There will even be appetising gluten free choices for kids! Some of the tantalising highlights include an award-winning cannoli bar, pasta bar, pizza station, souvas, meat pies, sausage rolls, doughnuts and, maybe best of all, beer on-tap!

After satisfying your gluten free cravings, head to The Genius Stage where you can enjoy an exciting line-up of speakers including AFL footballer player Ben Brown and Olympian Brooke Stratton. You are sure to relate to their stories on living with coeliac disease and the positive impacts of following a gluten free diet.

Two expert gastroenterologists, Dr Jason Tye-Din and Professor Don Cameron, who are leading voices in coeliac disease and the gluten free diet, will also be on-hand to share practical advice on cooking for a gluten free diet, managing special requirements when dining out and all the latest insights and research in the field.

But that's not all - MasterChef contestants Michael Weldon and Courtney Roulston will be whipping up a gluten free storm on the Cooking Stage. The action-packed line-up also includes chef Richard Barassi from The Intolerant Cooks and kids are welcome to don an apron and have a go too!

The Gluten Free Expo is a great way to entertain the kids these school holidays as children under 16 receive FREE entry. Doors open from 9am-4pm daily and you can save a few bucks if you purchase your tickets online.

We hope to see you there! Check out the full line-up of exhibitors and what's on at www.glutenfreeexpo.com.au
