DINING AT SAT NAM FEST
The food at Sat Nam Fest is lovingly and consciously prepared by our culinary team lead by Shivanter Singh. With over 30 years experience working with food and creating healthful, tasty and joyous dining experiences.
Sat Nam Fest meals are served out of the main dining hall and provide a cozy atmosphere to sit with friends, old and new, to break bread (even gluten free) and share delicious and nourishing vegetarian meals. Meal passes can be pre-purchased when you register online for a discounted fee. All meals will be served buffet style with an abundance of exciting and nourishing options at each meal.
The menu is all vegetarian with vegan and gluten free options. In our effort to best serve you and our planet, we prepare meals using as much local and organic foods as possible. Each meal will also provide a pure foods section with simple clean foods such as steamed vegetables, Quinoa, millet or brown rice for those wanting to keep to a simpler cleansing diet while at Sat Nam Fest.
