The festival is expected to draw a crowd of more than 6,000 and will offer meat-free fare, cooking workshops, and educational talks on nutrition and living well. Carrillo-Bucaram’s recipes have been featured on Ellen DeGeneres’s blog, and she recently appeared on CNN en Español to discuss the benefits of plant-based living. Carrillo-Bucaram has more than 2 million views on her food-focused YouTube channels: FullyRaw Kristina and Rawfully Organic. The festival will take place the first weekend of March.
