The Specktator is thrilled to have European Street Cafe as title sponsor of the online calendar!
As one of my favorite places to eat, drink and socialize in the the city, “E. Street” (as the cool kids call it) makes the perfect partner to help promote the best events happening in the city.
NOTE: This is a “curated calendar,” meaning I have personally reviewed each event and consider it to be of interest to the general public and/or something particularly compelling. It is important to know that businesses cannot buy a calendar entry. That said, if you have an event you would like considered for the calendar or a $pon$ored feature, send the pertinent information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
And by the way, be sure to change the view from “month” to “stream” below. Unless you like being really annoyed.
A free, sustainable festival devoted to environmental awareness, animal advocacy, and of course, plant-based cuisine. Psychic readings also available.
This festival is not affiliated with the Northeast Florida Veg Fest, which is usually held yearly but was cancelled this year. We’re here to fill in the gap so no one misses out on a day we ourselves love so much.
