Welcome Autumn at the D.C. VegFest

If there was one resonating complaint about the first NYC Vegetarian Food Festival, it was that it wasn’t held outdoors. East coasters, here you go.

The D.C. VegFest is a free, outdoor festival being held this year on Saturday, September 24, 2011 from 11am-6pm at George Washington University.

Organized by Compassion Over Killing and The Vegetarian Society of DC, the event will feature a talk with Wayne Pacelle, President & CEO of The Humane Society of the United States and a cooking demonstration by vegan chef, Isa Chandra Moskowitz among its numerous speakers slated to appear.

With food vendors, like Sunflower Vegetarian Restaurant and Cupcake Wars winner Sticky Fingers Sweets & Eats; commercial vendors, like Arbonne and Vaute Couture; and non-profit organizations, like Mercy for Animals and Farm Sanctuary, this is shaping up to be an exciting 7 hours to kick off your fall season.
