Acorns A Go-Go Groovy Vegan Festival


This is not a Western MD Veg Life meetup event. It is information for our members.

We'll have fab live music, amazing vegan food, interesting vegan vendors and exhibitors, a speaker or two, a vegan drum circle to kick off the fest (10-11am) and even an acorn expert who will demonstrate how to turn acorns into flour and then into vegan bread and cookies!!

Many thanks and see you at Acorns A Go-Go!!

The Acorns A Go-Go Veganactivistas -

Cam MacQueen, Lisa Qualls & Reagan Kimball

P.S. Some have asked about the name, Acorns A Go-Go - so, a bit of history: we decided to go with an acorn theme since acorns are vegan!, abundant in the fall, and a vital part of our ecological system.

And, Historic Greenbelt, a Tree City, exists in an oak forest - how cool is that?!

In addition to the acorn theme, we have combined Go-Go -- for a funky, psychedelic 60's backdrop. It was in the 1960's the DC music genre Go-go was born and also a time when go-go dancers started dancing in dj booths at the famous Whiskey A Go-Go in Hollywood, CA.

The 60's decade was a time of movers and shakers and paradigm breakers. The times we live in call for a revival of that same energy of peace, love, understanding and vegan Go-Go!!

So, feel free to do your own thing to get into the 60's Go-Go spirit - put on your love beads, vegan Birkenstocks, pleather go-go boots!, tie-dyed t-shirts or whatever neato ideas you have to let your inner vegan, flower child out to play!!

    We were already in the area, and decided to drop by. It may have been the weather, but the crowd was quite thin. Food was good, but it would not have been worth the trip had we gone all that way just for the event.
