I was recently invited to a preview for VEGFEST 2014. VEGFEST is a huge vegan festival organized by Compassion Over Killing (COK) with several awesome companies sponsoring this event. While at the preview held at Bus Boys and Poets (who has a new vegan menu that I will be writing about it a separate post!), I had a chance to see who some of the sponsors are and try their products. It definitely opened my eyes to a lot of new things and even though I am not a vegan, I was really impressed by a lot of the different food and merchandise. What I really liked is that some of the products had a great message behind them. It’s always great to see companies giving back and trying to better the world.
VEGFEST 2014 is this Saturday, September 20 from 11-6 at Yards Park in DC – did I mention it’s a free festival! No entrance free, tons of free samples and vendors selling things. First 1000 guests will receive a free goody bag! I received a goody bag when I was at the preview, and let me tell you, it was super awesome. One of the best goody bags I have received. Vegans sure know how to party :)
Even if you are not a vegan, I highly recommend checking out this festival. You will learn a lot, enjoy a lot of food and see some really cool speakers, including this awesome woman - Dr. Betty Smith.
