Natural Awakenings Richmond

VegFest is Back at Byrd Park

The 20th annual Richmond VegFest will be held from noon to 6 p.m.,  October 7 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, My Vegan Sweet Tooth,  Soupergirl, and Natural Awakenings magazine—wonderful vendors and amazing volunteers.
Admission is free. Currently vaccinated, leashed dogs are welcome. For more information, visit Take the 22-day pledge to go vegan today at
