Bring a cooler bag along with you to stock up on some of the most cultured products available in California!

There is something for everyone from beginners to fermentation masters. Plus – hear why these foods are so important for our whole body health.


  • fermented rootbeer floats: What happens when a keg of Triple Root Beer from The Kefiry and a few gallons of  ice cream (non-dairy and dairy!) meet at the Fermentation Festival? Insanely yummy probiotic root beer floats are created.  We are thrilled to partner with Coconut Bliss and Straus to offer their classic vanilla ice cream options, dairy and non-dairy!
