about FRIDAY SATURDAY OCTOBER 18-19, 2019 animoré is the first annual weekend festival in celebration of and for the love of animals. The festival will take place Friday, October 18 and Saturday, October 19, 2019 on the grounds of Alaqua Animal Refuge’s future home in Freeport, Florida. The weekend showcases two events — the 6th Annual 100 Point and Cult Wine Dinner and the Inaugural Barn Jam. The animoré weekend benefit was born out of an idea from Alaqua’s Founder Laurie Hood to create a community event combining music with excellent food and wine in support of animal welfare. For hundreds of years, music has enhanced our souls and holds a special spiritual power for engaging our senses. Interactions with animals also have powerful effects on the human spirit and body. As such, one of our goals for our future home and its unique environment is to be an inspiration for creating a kinder, more empathetic, and healthier society by healing animals and people. We believe that this inaugural animoré festival does just that – bringing people together through music and engagement to help heal and give animals in Alaqua’s care second chances at life, happiness, and most of all, love.
