Natural Awakenings Richmond

Celebrate Plant-Based Eating with Soul

Jun 30, 2022 03:16PM ● By Adriea Clarke

The third annual Soul Vegan Block Party is a festival with a mission to introduce and promote a plant-based lifestyle in a positive environment. Held from 1 to 7 p.m., September 10, in a new location at Abner Clay Park, it is an opportunity for the Richmond community to come together to support new and exciting plant-based vendors and other community groups with food, speakers, cooking demonstrations, music and a variety of small businesses and nonprofit organizations. 

Event founder and organizer Adriea Clarke is a lover of travel and all things culinary, and noticed a lack of diversity at vegan events when she traveled. In her few years of being vegan, she also observed a hesitancy in other African Americans about why they couldn't be vegan. This is where the idea was born to host an event that promoted veganism, education and African American culture. 

Free admission! Location: 119 W. LEIGH STREET RICHMOND, VA 23220
