Something for Everyone at the DC VegFest!

We’re excited to present the 2013 DC VegFest, and between the phenomenal vegan food, impressive speakers lineup, and a wide variety of animal-, environmental-, and health-related businesses displaying their products and services, you won’t want to miss this fun event!

In addition to a hefty appetite, festival attendees should bring their friends, family, kids, and four-legged friends to take full advantage of what the 2013 DC VegFest has to offer.

While adults are welcome to enjoy Bread & Brew’s beer and wine garden, kids can kickback in their very own activities tent. Featuring veg-related coloring and puzzles, face-painting, and a kid-friendly cooking demo, the kids’ tent will provide the entertainment and snacks to please any youngster. Plus, vegan mother of three, Lesley Parker Rollins will be hosting an “Ask A Vegan Mom” hour in which new or veteran vegan parents can ask questions, such as what kid-friendly vegan recipes she recommends or how to approach challenging social situations that might be unique to vegan parents.

Sticky Fingers Sweets & Eats owner and Cupcake Wars champion Doron Petersan will also be in the kids’ area dishing out information on creating delicious kid-friendly vegan food!

Parents of furry, four-legged children should bring their canine companions to the dog treat station sponsored by organic, vegan dog treat company Max and Ruffy’s.

In between cooking demos from ieatgrass.com founder and chef Ayinde Howell, holistic health and wellness expert Ruby Lathon, and authors of the newly released Betty Goes Vegan Annie and Dan Shannon, festival goers should try their hand at conquering the veggie obstacle course — a new family-friendly activity!

With this much going on, you won’t want to miss this event. See you on Sat., Sept. 28th at Yards Park!
