)-- Second NYC Vegetarian Food Festival Not Just For Vegetarians
Dr. Michael Greger, director of Public Health and Animal Agriculture at The Humane Society of the United States, will be one of the top speakers at the second annual NYC Vegetarian Food Festival, the event for foodies, locavores, vegetarians, vegans, flexitarians, and all those who want to find out more about living a healthy, sustainable lifestyle.
When: Saturday and Sunday, March 3-4, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Where: The Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street, Manhattan
US Veg Corp is back for round 2 with the Second Annual New York City Vegetarian Food Festival, arriving at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan (125 West 18thStreet) on March 3-4, 2012.
The venue size and the hours of operation have both been doubled since last year’s incarnation, due to the hordes of people who lined up for hours waiting to get in.
Among the 75+ vendors this time around will be Fruit Bliss, Lumen Soy Foods, Mama Micki’s All Natural Bakery, Rescue Chocolate, and Vegan Sailing Vacations. Animal-friendly non-profits such as PETA and The Humane League will also have exhibition space.
One of the more heart-warming tables will be manned by a group calling itself “Juno Rescued Beagle.” The group came into existence in July 2010 when 120 beagles were rescued from a bankrupt research facility in New Jersey. Five-year-old Juno was one of those beagles. She had never experienced sunshine on her face or grass under her paws, having lived her whole life in the confines of a metal cage. Happily, she was adopted into a loving family and even became a certified therapy dog. At the Juno table, volunteers will let people know about the small things they can do to help end the cruel practice of animal testing.
Herbivore Clothing will be another featured vendor. The Oregon-based company celebrates cruelty-free culture and fashion with all-vegan belts, wallets, clothing, accessories, and unusual items such as the Vegan Pregnancy Survival Guide.
And then there’s Bagel Spice, a vendor who will be showcasing shakers of yummy ingredients that can be incorporated into one’s bagel schmears to take bagel-eating to the next level.
Lectures, cooking demos, and book-signings will also be on tap, provided by the likes of Laura Theodore (known as the Jazzy Vegetarian), veg life coach Ellen Jaffe Jones, Steve Meyerowitz (aka The Sproutman), and many others.
VIP admission packages are on sale through https://nycvegetarianfoodfestival.chirrpy.com. General admission tickets for $5 will be available at the door, while they last.
