This is a community-wide event planned and organized by volunteers from several of our local vegan meetup groups.  

The entire greater Sacramento vegan community is invited to come join in the festivities, and an open invitation is extended to the surrounding vegan community (Davis, Rocklin, Roseville, Lincoln, Grass Valley, Auburn, etc.)  

Come, bring your friends & families!

    Wonderful blend of thought-provoking speakers, great food, and informative exhibits, all in a newly available, rustic camp setting centrally located in Sacramento. It was a delightful event!

    I will be tabling for Mercy For Animals. We have a petition asking Wal-Mart to stop using gestation crates. Please stop by if you can.
