Wonderful Wizards of Raw Adds Sunday to FestivalMay 01, 2021 01:00PM ● By Staff
The Wonderful Wizards of Raw, an annual celebration of raw food that includes vendors, speakers, entertainment and a raw chef competition, will take place June 4 through June 6.
Produced by Tassili’s Raw Reality Café, a vegan restaurant in the West End, this year’s festival theme is “The Divine Family,” and the kickoff to the weekend starts at 5 p.m. at Cascade Springs Nature Preserve. It will include a nature walk, libations, and more.
The main event will be held in the backyard of Tassili’s Raw Reality Café at 1059 Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard. Saturday hours are from 1 to 8 p.m. and Sunday hours are from 2 to 7 p.m. This year’s event is the festival’s ninth, and it is the first year that it extends into Sunday. While there were Sunday elements to the weekend in the past, those elements did not include raw food vendors. Given the addition, festival managers anticipate twice the number of raw vendors signing up to participate.
“Our vision for 2021 and beyond is to transform the Wonderful Wizards of Raw from a backyard event into a full-fledged community festival,” says Tassili Ma’at, founder and owner of the café. “We have moved the Ancestor’s Commemoration to Friday evening at the Cascade Nature Preserve to start the Festival off with a meaningful vibration.”
