Greetings Peeps! While Comfest 2018 runs Fri Jun 22 through Sun Jun 24th this year, and we will have a Columbus Vegan Meetup and VeganShift booth there all weekend long, we want to make a special invitation to you to join us on Sun, Jun 24th as we will also be hosting the 8th annual "The Vegan Connection" presentation developed by veteran vegan Eriyah Flynn for Comfest. It is a free event hosted by local vegan community collaboration from nonprofit Vegan Shift and the Columbus Vegan Meetup group.

The Vegan Connection 2018 presents:

Noelle Bartholdi, a world-class competitive and winning vegan athlete, who lives in Columbus, OH. She is passionate about helping others achieve fitness excellence on a vegan (100% plant-based) diet!

Also presenting will be Kamal and Ami Panchal, of Banana Leaf Indian restaurant. This dynamic duo will delight our attendees with a demonstration of a delicious authentic Indian vegan cuisine recipe. Founder, Eriyah Flynn, discusses how to get connected to the local support community.

Be sure to arrive at the park early, parking is always difficult in the short north and walking across the park can be distracting, take more time than you expect, and people get confused about which stage is "The Solar Stage" because several stages are now powered by solar and they don't often realize that. There is also a bicycle corral for those who decide to bike. We look forward to seeing you there, bring your non-vegan friends, family, co-workers, church community and of course, your fitness and athletic associates!
