Slow Food Nation was an event organized by Slow Food USA, which celebrates slow and sustainable foods. Slow Food Nation attracted an estimated audience of more than 50,000 people.[1][2] Held over the Labor Day weekend from August 29 to September 1, 2008, the majority of the event took place in either San Francisco's Civic Center and Fort Mason Center. Slow Food Nation's founder is influential chef and author Alice Waters. In addition to a specially-created "victory garden" in front of San Francisco City Hall, a marketplace, tastings, photo exhibits [1], and other events, Slow Food Nation featured panels led by food luminaries such as Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser, as well as the founder of Slow Food, Carlo Petrini.[3]
