Rochester VegFest will be at Martin Luther King Jr. Park on September 15th from 10 am to 4 pm! We are hard at work bringing in new speakers, vendors, and fun!
Ordering is closed, sorry.
Did you miss your chance to get an official VegFest T-shirt? We are doing a second run – and including tank tops and kids’ sizes too!
So many people came together to make VegFest a success!
We want to give a big thank-you to Kim for being our treasurer and RAVS rep, Leanne for being our designer, artist, and webmaster, and Darren for being our carpenter and all-around go-getter. In addition to taking on those big jobs, they took on numerous small jobs that needed to be done. All three also worked hard at Friday’s event and from dawn to dusk at VegFest.
Thank you to Mary for leading a yoga benefit for Jo-Anne MacArthur’s We Animals project Saturday morning, and thank you to those who came. What a lovely way to start a day of peace and friendship.
Our Dinner and a Movie event Friday night was a huge success! Fifty-five people came out for Greek spreads and bread dip (thanks for the donation, Voula!), Buddha Bowls from Red Fern, and cupcakes from Happy Cakes, followed by a showing of Speciesism: The Movie, and then a talk by its director Mark Devries. Thank you to everyone who attended, everyone who bid in the silent auction, and to the item donors. Thank you to Cam F. Awesome for MC-ing and Mark Devries for bringing his film and speaking. We were glad other VegFest speakers Mike Stura, Kerry Graff, Ted Barnett, and Jo-Anne MacArthur could attend.
Thank you to Jack & Meg for donating two tickets. Thank you to organizers and everyone who helped out or brought stuff either to use, eat, or donate: Mary, Bubbie, Deb, Kim, Darren, Mike, Leanne, Robyn, Varun, Andy, Michael, Rosemary, and Ted. People helped in so many big and little ways I can’t possibly list everything everyone did.
