Can’t Wait for the DC VegFest? Neither Can We — Join Us for a Special Preview!

Have you heard? Registration is open for the 2015 DC VegFest Kickoff Party! The event will be held at the Loft at 600 F St NW on October 2, from 6pm to 9pm.

We are so excited to be hosting our Kickoff Party at this beautiful venue in the city. Nestled in the vibrant Penn Quarter/Chinatown area, directly across the street from the Verizon Center, the Loft is easily accessible by public transportation. The exposed brick interior lends a cozy atmosphere to the second floor space, while large windows provide ample light and look out onto the National Building Museum. Elegant hardwood floors and terrazzo tile ceilings complete the stylish suite.

What better way is there to complement the charm and class of this posh downtown gem than to display art? Artists Dana Ellyn and Matt Sesow will be displaying several of their pieces at the Kickoff Party and are generously donating a portion of their sales to the DC VegFest.

The party will be catered by Native Foods, a vegan fast food restaurant chain which recently opened three locations in the Washington, DC area. They will be providing appetizers, salads, sandwiches, wraps, and desserts for the Kickoff Party; if you’ve never tasted their dishes, you’re in for a treat! Thirsty? Guests (age 21 or older!) can purchase alcoholic drinks at our cash bar.

Feeling lucky? Where there is a party, there must be a raffle; join us October 2 and you may win a prize! Proceeds will help our organization to continue advocating on behalf of farmed animals! You’ll also see two of our celebrity speakers while you’re enjoying refreshments and delicious bites – David Carter and Jane Velez-Mitchell!

If you are interested in joining us on October 2, please register today! Tickets are $30 per person through October 1. Tickets purchased at the door will be $40 each.
