This was my first time attending WFF!  It has changed my life, my soul and my heart.  I am so blessed and thankful for this opportunity, now I feel that I am a part of the most delicious, kind, thoughtful, generous, acceptable, loving and carrying big fruit family.  I have never met so many incredible people in one place, the organizers did a fantastic job on putting it together and providing the most epic, ripe fruits from all over the world. Everyone has to attend this festival to understand the beauty of what nature can provide to us and experience the feeling of love and wisdom from all the guests speakers.  I have been reborn and rejuvinated.  I came back as a new person.  I cannot wait for WFF 2017.  Here is my story about the best 11 days of my life:

I want to thank everyone who participated and helped to organize this event.  This is the best vacation that you can only dream about.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I was so touched by this review @Danielleonfruit on IG!

Thank you, Danielle!

This is what keeps us going!!!

Spreading the message of a better and more compassionate way to live for yourself and all beings.

Thanks Paul for the great wishes and I am sure my sister will like your compliment :)

I wish the same for you and your wife. It is an amazing festival to take part in and is a life experience like non other, the energy is palpable and the spirit of the festival is pure and loving.  It has been about 7 years eating this way, it really allows us to feel our best and you get to know what normal is, it helps you reconnect to your true spirit and all living things. One of or main purposes on this planet is to be the protectors of all beings, to be the nurturers and the givers not the takers. If I can help in anyway just message me :)

All the best :)

Oh, beautiful!! Lori Anne Lanigan & Mikey, great to see your pics & read about your experiences, I don't know how to load pix on here, but my partner & I postponed our 25 yr Anniversay to celebrate it in a much healthier & exciting way to re-enforce our commitment to each other and as a way of evolving in even more positive aspects.  I wanted to be part of a movement that is for optimal health & being for us, the environment, universal peace.  May you & your family reap the benefits of a delicious plant based diet. Love & hugs :-) Buttplug kopen

I've participated in all these festivals from 2011-2014. Each instance is always one of the most rewarding, refreshing times of my life. The highlight of the year, easily. When I'm not there, I find myself so looking forward to next time! You wouldn't believe the amount of fond nostalgia that lives on in my heart long afterward. I know what they're talking about when I hear so many people testify how life-transformational their experiences are.


Not only loads of fun, but high vibes from the gathering of so many health enthusiasts. There's nothing like being around a big group of positive like-minded folks. It's one of the biggest factors supporting my chosen values and path. These are the kinds of people I most value being friends with.


The investment of time and money is so well worth it, compared to what I've received in return. Where else can you get so many days of: as many fruits and veggies as you like, prepared dinner every day, camping/lodging, activities, informational teachings, networking with quality individuals...all included for such a low price?! It's also a non-profit project, organized purely for the good of the community. Righteous all the way around.


Anyone and everyone interested in healthful living owes it to themselves to be here. Join the high five high vibe tribe! We welcome you with open arms!

I cannot recommend the Woodstock Fruit Festival enough! I attended in 2013 and it was probably the best vacation I have taken as an adult, and worth every cent. If you are a seasoned low-fat raw vegan, like I am, you will feel like you are coming home. If you are newer to the lifestyle then it is an amazing opportunity to be able to ask your questions, meet like-minded people and experience some truly excellent meals. I believe attending a week-long event can really give a solid foundation for making healthy lifestyle changes. Last year I was nursing an injury and wasn't able to participate in many of the awesome physical activities offered but I still had loads of fun doing yoga, walking, swimming & boating. The hardest part to describe is the general atmosphere/energy that exudes from attendees & speakers. People make eye contact, smile, are happy to chat with you. I can't wait to go again this year (2014)!

Every morning I wake up and give thanks for three things in my life. This morning I gave thanks for one thing three times because it was just that fricken awesome! I am so grateful for all the wonderful friends I have made either directly or indirectly from The Woodstock Fruit Festival! I can't even begin to tell you what a difference it's been to be among such beautiful, vibrant, healthy and thriving individuals. The positivity, the love and the support. I feel truly blessed to have you all in my life in any capacity! You continue to challenge and inspire me. This morning my heart was with you all!!! I can't wait for this summer for two weeks of amazing inspiration from loving and supportive people, and to reunite with the friends I've made from all over the world.

Since the Woodstock Fruit Festival, I've met more like minded people, maintained a very high low fat raw vegan diet, have lost over 20 lbs (down 50 lbs total) and feel the best I ever have in my life!

From Andrew Perlot

I loved attending the Woodstock Fruit Festival in 2013. From the moment I arrived, I knew I was somewhere great. The vibe attendees give off is different than you find among the general populace – these are people who are interested in thriving on a whole new level, and they're taking steps to go down that path rather than remaining stagnant in the status quo.

It's a fruit festival, of course, and the unlimited fruit buffet is great. But so are the morning fitness classes, the beautiful lake, the amazing conversations to be had with progressive people, and so much more.

I actually met my girlfriend at Woodstock, and for that alone the price of admission was well worth it.

I highly suggest it to anyone who wants to learn how to thrive.

I loved the people! It was the most friendly people I've ever met in my life. We could be ourselves, as shown in the bonfires:

Hi Marina, I hope to see you and your partner again at next year's festival. I was trying to remember where I knew you from at the festival, and then it clicked. I spoke to you and your partner while in line registering at the festival. Hopefully we'll bump into each other more next time. :-) I'm hoping to bring my husband and 2 boys for the first week.

Have a great day Marina!

I went to the Woodstock Fruit Festival looking for inspiration and personal growth. I found both. I’ve been on and off the diet for the past few years. Mostly off. My brother, Michael Lanigan, has been eating 80/10/10 for the past 3 to 4 years. He’s been an amazing inspiration, mentor and coach. My “head” would say that this is the way I should be eating, but my “dents”, as Tim Van Orden would say, were saying something else. For the first few days I had a mild headache, coffee detox. I started to feel more like myself on the Thursday and started to feel the benefits of having more energy and mental clarity. For most of the week I didn’t feel like I would continue the diet when I got home. I had already heard a lot of the information that was presented at the lectures from my brother. What changed everything for me was the Tim Van Orden lecture, “Getting Unstuck” and then Chris Kendall’s lecture, “Creating Ease with the Raw Food Lifestyle”. I bought Tim’s audio book, Turbo Charge Your Life. I highly recommend it to everyone! Their lectures weren’t about the diet so much, as they were about your mind and your state of being. I felt the impact immediately. Instead of focusing on calories or “diet”, I just chose to eat some fruit. Instead of thinking of eating a whole bowl of grapes, I just focused on eating one grape and then another. It’s been just over a month since the festival and I’m still going strong. I’m not perfect, but that’s not my goal. My goal is to love myself, accept myself and continue to choose the best foods to eat so that I can be at my best every day. I’ve got two boys with special needs and they need me to be there for them. When I choose to eat healthfully, I can be who I’m meant to be. See you all next year, hopefully with the rest of my family too! :-)
