Veggie Roadtrip to First-Ever Philly VegFest

The first ever Philadelphia VegFest is happening this June! Philly Vegfest will celebrate the wonderful veg food available in Philadelphia and celebrate the endless benefits of a plant-based diet. This FREE event will feature all kinds of vegetarian foods, vegan cooking demos, health and nutritional information, and more. The Humane League is thrilled to be sponsoring this inaugural event!

They've already lined up Christine Pirello of the PBS show "Christina Cooks" as one of the day's speakers!

Philly's veggie community is growing strong with a number of vegan/vegetarian spots throughout the city and more omni spots taking up vegan options. If you follow The Food Duo on Facebook or Instagram, you may have seen their photo-log of a recent vegan food crawl in February.

So, who's up for a road trip?!?! We can go caravan-style with a couple of cars OR take the bus or train.

    Hello guys, writing to confirm all that are riding with me. Marcia and possibly Sheree. I also have a strong possibility of my girlfriend and her daughter. I'm asking for those that are riding with me to meet me at my house. We are then driving to Carmella's to follow them. All I ask is that you contribute towards gas and have an open mind and flexible schedule once we arrive. If you need to reach me here is my number. [masked]-2022. Suzan is no longer going

      Oh hey! I didn't know you were going to follow us! But it's cool. We're thinking of grabbing breakfast in NJ tho and leaving between 7:00 and 7:30.

      If you have any room, would you be able to give Demetrius a ride back to NY? Let me know if that won't work so I can tell him.

    Hi everyone! We're less than 3 days away from Philly VegFest! According to Weather.com, we should expect Saturday to be sunny with a high in the low 80s!

    Checked weather for that day and looks like light rain....

    Hi Marcia,
    I will be going with Dina to Philly and it would be great to have someone to go to dinner with if we cannot join Dina, Carmella and Carlo at the restaurant they have reservations. Dina told me that she thinks there are a lot of restaurants in the area we could go to. I will check it out.

  • Dina C.

    Hi guys! I am watching! Lol! But only have one shot a day to watch and respond. Easier to get me on FB! Anyhoo, I did connect with Marcia. She said if she's not going to dinner doesn't make sense to carpool with me. But Marcia if you can grab a bite to eat elsewhere I'll be leaving immediately afterward. Anyone else Suzan yes you can carpool with. Contact me via FB or my cell[masked]

    If you're hoping to try some of Philly's finest spots like Vedge or Miss Rachel's Pantry for dinner, I definitely recommend making reservations sooner rather than later.

    Note: Miss Rachel only hosts one seating of 12 on Saturday nights. Reservations are required.

    • Suzan P.

      Could you make one for me as well since hopefully I will be riding with Dina and will go where she is going? Thanks.

      May 29, 2014

    • Carmella

      Well, I'm not making reservations for people. Did get a spot for Dina at Miss Rachel's since I was going, but it was the last slot. Rachel said she'd let me know if anyone cancelled to get another if needed. So far, that hasn't happened. Dina - Have you connected with Marcia yet?

  • Dina C.

    so are we doing cars or bus or train?

    May 1, 2014

    • Marcia

      Dina, I am only planning on going for the day...Carmella said you wanted to carpool. I'm game.

      1 · May 16, 2014

    • Suzan P.

      Hi Dina! Would you have a space left for me too for Philly? Thanks.

      1 · May 29, 2014

  • Marcia

    Sorry I'm late on this discussion but I will go just for the day and would like to carpool.

    1 · May 14, 2014

    • Carmella

      Hi Marcia. Please feel free to contact Dina. She's offered to carpool, since she's going just for the day.

      1 · May 16, 2014

    • Marcia

      Well, hopefully she is watching this convo!

    How are you planning on going there?

    1 · April 26, 2014

    • Carmella

      Hi Laura. Not sure if you're saw the posts since this one. If you're interested, some of us will be driving down either for the day or overnight.

      May 13, 2014

  • Carmella

    Carlo & I are driving since we're staying overnight. I just need to know who needs a ride and who's planning this as a day trip vs overnight stay

    1 · May 6, 2014

    • Dina C.

      For me it looks like its going to be a day trip only, so whomever wants to carpool with me let me know.

      May 13, 2014

    • Carmella

      Do you still want the reservation at Rachel's? I only was able to get for one, in case your friend couldn't go

      May 13, 2014

  • Carmella

    Emails went out yesterday with some info on travel. If you didn't receive the emails, let me know!

    1 · May 13, 2014

  • Carmella

    Quick update: Carlo & I are planning on staying in Philly overnight. If anyone is interested in doing the same, please let me know.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
