Rawstock Niagara was started in 2012 by Truly Organic Food owners Lee & Kent Oszust. Fuelled by their passion for raw foods, and supported by the local raw food community, the idea of creating something amazing was born.
With the help of Fabienne Aillou and Mandi Gould, the first Rawstock vision began, and on August 25th, 2012 the first festival took place at the lovely Kinsmen Hall in Niagara-on-the-Lake. With 28 vendors, 6 speakers, 5 musical guests and free all day yoga, over 2300 people came out to take part in the festivities. The atmosphere was filed with love, happiness, children playing, amazing food, and magical music.
Lee & Fabienne have taken a break and will not be organizing Rawstock 2013, however stay tuned as a Rawstock 2014 will hopefully be happening!
