    Needs a different, more quiet venue that can handle the crowds. Too cramped and loud. Too much "for sale" food caused much of the congestion. Move them to another area. Would go again if it was better presented.

      Just to clarify Larry, I didn't suggest to have less food vendors, only to move them away from the other "free" tables so there is more room in the aisles to walk. Another option would be to make wider aisles, and yes, moving the speakers to a more quiet location would be helpful as well. What I also felt was very much needed were more free food vendors giving vegan samples. You know, vegan food companies (i.e., Cedar's) giving samples of their products. I'm a hard-core animal rights activist, but being a VegFest, shouldn't more vegan food options be represented instead of so many animal rights/welfare tables? Thanks!

      Samples from more vegan food producers would be great, but unfortunately it is very difficult to get distant businesses to commit to the major time and expense of participating in a far-away event.

      There was a booth selling organic veggies. It was really cheap too.

      Living Earth had a booth selling organic fruit and vegetables. We also had regional environmental council selling plants.

    This was my first time and I really enjoyed it. It did get very crowded, but it was a nice crowd. I will definitely go next year. More tables to eat at would be nice since there was space for them and actually tables that weren't put up. My friends said they enjoyed it more than the Boston festival.
