Ketofest 2018 Kickstarter

I've blogged about my trip to Ketofest in 2017, a truly excellent experience.  Ketofest is planned to return to New London, Connecticut July 20-22.  Carl Franklin has started a Kickstarter campaign in order to secure $80,000 in pre-sales tickets by March 31.  If those tickets are not pre-sold, Ketofest will not take place.  So I encourage anyone that is planning on going to order your ticket now at  This year they are planning on doubling the 300 attendees from last year.

I've already reserved two VIP tickets for Ketofest which includes a VIP dinner with the speakers Friday night.  This year's Ketofest will include:

  • Tours (for an additional cost):
    • A walking tour of New London. (I did this last year, it was very interesting.)
    • Segway tours of New London.
  • Fasting Friday - Megan Ramos from IDM  (Intensive Dietary Managementwill host a free event where she shares the latest data on the science of fasting
  • VIP dinner party at Carl Franklin's house - Space is limited and you must purchase VIP tickets.
    • Meet the speakers
    • Keto lobster bisque
    • 48-hour sous-vide chuck steak
    • German red cabbage
  • Restaurants offering keto - several restaurants in the area will have at least one keto dish available.  $20 worth of food tickets are included with your Ketofest ticket
  • Social Saturday
    • Pig Roast
    • Grilled sausages and other meats
    • Carl's keto clam "chowda!"
    • Live band
    • Water and coffee
    • Wine and cheese tasting nearby
    • Fitness coach Allan Misner will offer lessons (I did this last year and now he's my trainer.)
    • Instructional keto cooking lessons with tasting samples available (there were some awesome dishes last year)
  • Science Sunday
    • There will be two venues offering different presentations from 8 AM to 5 PM.
