Away with the family during the long Labor Day weekend?
Read on for the DC VegFest Recap and attend next year!
VegFests are growing large and in charge across the nation, even smaller cities are beginning to take on the trend, but the largest VegFest on the East Coast can be found right here in D.C.
This year's speakers were on point. From watching Grey, the perfectly entertaining emcee of the day, grill Chef Eddie Garza on crowd questions (above) prior to rapping Plant Based Drippin (awesome) -- to listening to Anthony Carter, former NFL football player, talk about what veganism is ALL about - -to observing Miyoko Schinner, CEO of Miyoko's kitchen, prepare vegan cheese.. uh, yummmm -- Everything was amazing.
The weather was 60s and rain, but that didn't stop thousands of people from coming out and celebrating, or learning about, this way of life. It also didn't stop from having an interactive experience, everyone WANTED to take time and share in good conversation.
The vendors also had strong turnout. Brewing Good Coffee Company even sold out of their hot cups of joe!
we prefer the nitro, and the newest cascada, anyway!
I had an extremely delicious Krautdog -- vegan, of course! -- and hit the beer garden (a couple of times) hosted by Bus Boys and Poets, all in between hitting vegan cheese stands.
Treeline has quickly become a good go-to in this household.
Young, old. Hungry, thirsty. Advocate, supporter. Rescue dog family, animal sanctuary owner. Newly vegan or not.
DC VegFest had something for everyone.
yes, even pups in rain jackets!
