DC VegFest

Hi everyone,

The DC VegFest will once again be at Yards Park this year. Yards Park is near Nationals Park which is located in Southeast Washington, south of the Capitol, along the fast-developing Capitol Riverfront adjacent to the Navy Yard. The VegFest is scheduled for September 28, 2013 from 11:00 to 6:00. For more info on the VegFest, see: http://dcvegfest.com/. For more info on Yards Park, go to http://www.yardspark.org

I thought that it would be a great idea to have a booth to promote our group.  If anyone is interested in helping out with the booth on that day, please let us know.

    I loved it! SO many awesome people sharing their experiences in animal activism and telling others about ways to go veg/an. Plus, there was tons of yummy food to try! (Did anyone brave the hour way for Vegan Treats?)

    Crowded - I guess that's a good thing, but the location space could have been bigger/more spread out.

    My wife and I had an awesome time. Our dogs enjoyed it also.

    I signed up for VSDC and the "vegan powered" mailing list. I'm heartened that the only real problem at the veg festival was long lines and large crowds.

    I won't be able to get to Veg Fest until noon. I noticed that Rich Roll's presentation is at 1PM. Rich is an vegan ultra-marathon runner. Is anyone planning to attend his presentation? This would be a good way for all of us to get together.

    Since most Americans are overweight what are you doing to live a healthier lifestyle?

      That's a great question Gene! Hopefully those who are in this group are making exercise and healthy vegan eating a part of their lifestyle.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
