Grab your favorite vegan tailgate snacks and celebrate football season with South Florida’s number one plant-based community!
In celebration of football season, SoFlo Vegans is hosting an all-vegan Miami Dolphins tailgate. The event will take place on Sunday, October 24, when the Miami Dolphins play the Atlanta Falcons. The tailgate will feature music, food, and giveaways. Attendees are encouraged to bring their favorite vegan dish or snack to enjoy before the game.
Founded by media producer and community organizer Sean Russell, SoFlo Vegans is a South Florida-based platform that offers resources, articles, videos, and podcasts for those who are curious about a plant-based diet and lifestyle.
Vegan Football Tailgate Snacks
SoFlo Vegans is encouraging guests to bring their own vegan football tailgate snacks and dishes to enjoy themselves or to share with others at the party. This includes bites like Buffalo cauliflower wings, vegan pigs in a blanket, vegan chili, or plant-based taco dip with chips. In addition to snacks, guests can bring their own vegan-friendly beverages, such as hard seltzers or kombucha.
Plant-Based NFL Players
From quarterbacks to defensive tackles, many NFL players have gone vegan or tried a plant-based diet in recent years. Plant-forward NFL players include Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, former New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers defensive tackle DaQuan Jones, free agent and wide receiver Andre Patton, Tennessee Titans former linebacker Derrick Morgan, and San Francisco 49ers former quarterback Colin Kaepernick, to name a few.
Griff Whalen, who has played as a wide receiver for the Miami Dolphins, transitioned to a vegan diet in 2014 and was featured in The Game Changers, a film about plant-based eating, protein, and strength.
The SoFlo Vegans Miami Dolphins tailgate will take place on October 24 at 10am at the Hard Rock Stadium parking lot, with the Miami Dolphins vs Atlanta Falcons game to follow at 1pm.
