Thank you again to Marisa Poselovich of Sweet Image Photography for taking photos all day at Rochester VegFest 2019 and sharing them freely.
What a gift that we can have these shared memories, and that we didn’t have to worry about taking a lot of photos.
Below is the first batch she has sent us, from setup into the first hours.
We’re pumped that RIT’s Vegan Club is coming to VegFest again!
They meet bi-weekly to discuss vegan/sustainably minded events in the RIT and Rochester communities, tips on being vegan or how to go vegan, recipes, and other topics relating to animal rights, health, and the environment.
Sweet Pea Plant-Based Kitchen will be at Rochester VegFest! They offer nutritious plant-based heat-and-eat meals, and have a 10-Day Plant-Based Challenge beginning Monday after VegFest!
At their booth they will be selling their vegan burgers, vegan beet balls with marinara, gazpacho, granola bars, and cookie dough, and offering samples.
Elmhurst 1925 is returning to Rochester VegFest, bringing their plant-based beverages!
