VegFest is Back at Byrd Park
The 19th annual VegFest will be held from noon to 6 p.m., September 17 at the Carillon in Byrd Park. As always, there will be delicious vegetarian and vegan food, cooking demonstrations, vendors, life-changing presentations and some of the most compassionate people in RVA. On-site animal adoptions provide an opportunity to possibly discover your new BFF. Grab a cool treat and head over to hear ultra-marathon runner extraordinaire, Anne the Vegan, share her tips about being a vegan athlete.
The main objective of this annual event is to educate the public about the many healthful and humane aspects of a vegan lifestyle. The VegFest is a combined effort of amazing local sponsors—Vegan Action, the Vegetarian Society of Richmond, VegFund, My Vegan Sweet Tooth, Soupergirl, and Natural Awakenings magazine, plus wonderful vendors and amazing volunteers.
