Twin Cities Veg Fest/Their Lives Our Voices 2013

Twin Cities Veg Fest is for anyone and everyone – from omnivores to vegetarians and vegans! If you’ve ever thought about becoming vegetarian or are interested in reducing animal suffering, you’ll love Twin Cities Veg Fest.

Twin Cities Veg Fest is free to attend.

Learn where your food comes from, how to be a healthy vegetarian or vegan, and why being compassionate benefits everyone. Plus you’ll enjoy tons of free vegan food samples and delicious vegan cuisine. Everyone who came to our 2012 festival had a great time.

Stay tuned for more news as we have it.

 

Then there is TLOV! (Their Lives, Our Voices)

Their Lives, Our Voices gathers activists from around the country for an inclusive, high-quality, hands-on conference focused on empowering advocates in their efforts to help farmed animals. This event is accessible to all animal advocates, showcasing diverse topics and perspectives within our movement. Networking and attendee participation are vital to TLOV’s success, so please come and help make our fourth TLOV conference an exceptional event.

This year’s TLOV will be a one day event on Sunday, October 27 from 9:45am to 5:20pm. The event features Nathan Runkle of Mercy for Animals as our keynote speaker. We have a great set of speakers lined up for the rest of the day too. They will provide a full day of presentations and workshops that will help you become a better advocate for animals.

Registration is $20, with a $10 registration level available for students and low income individuals. You can register online right nowAll paid attendees will receive a vegan lunch as part of their registration fee.

Of course, you’ll also want to come a day before to visit the Twin Cities Veg Fest on Saturday, October 26.

TLOV is hosted by Compassionate Action for Animals.

Here is a cool map showing where to eat, and where to park and go.
