The first NYC Vegetarian Food Festival was amazing…once (if) you got in. Both Lauren of Gnosis and Eddie of Mercy for Animals have mentioned that there will be a second NYCVFF.
However, it turns out there will be two events! The Green Holiday Festival will be held December 11, 2011 and the 2012 NYC Vegetarian Food Festival will be held March 3rd and 4th (yes, two days!). Both are slated to again be held at the infamous Altman Building; the festivals will reportly be in a larger area, though. (We’ll see how that works out.)
A potentially good and rewarding strategy for getting in? Volunteer! These events don’t just come about with the flick of a wand. Either volunteer for the U.S. Veg Corp who puts these events together or find out early on if an organization you heart is going to be at the festival, like Mercy For Animals or Sea Shepherd, and ask if they need volunteers. Get engaged!
