Join us for a vegan potluck and presentation on "Transformation via the Butterfly" with Shirley Rosenhouse, biologist, science/health educator, and founder of Vegedu for vegan education. Shirley shares her journey from Israel to Los Angeles, relating it to the miraculous butterfly migration we saw this month and to our own spiritual journeys. Don't miss Shirley's special activity with butterfly cards! For the potluck, bring a vegan (plant-based raw and cooked foods, no animal products of any kind) potluck dish to share, your own plate/cup/utensils, and an open heart. We will have extra plates and utensils on hand. Be mindful to bring a dish versus a snack or drink so we have plenty of food for everyone. Schedule: 6pm Vegan Potluck 7pm "Transformation via the Butterfly" with Shirley Rosenhouse 8:00 Socialize

ATM Access: There is an ATM machine on the grounds of the festival. Admission prices – FREE!!! Yes – we’re happy to announce that VegFest Los Angeles 2019 will be FREE! Towards Freedom is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization Pets are not allowed except for service animals We are so sorry to say that due to strict Health Department regulations and liability issues we are unable to accommodate your pets (even on-leash) at the event this year. We are all animal- lovers and this is really disappointing for us. If it was possible for us to have them, we would! However, you can still get your “dog-fix” and all the dog-licks you can handle by visiting the many adoptable dogs from rescue organizations that will be available at the festival. Service animals are allowed. PARKING You can find us pretty easily – Search for VegFest Los Angeles on Google Maps or Waze. 1) We have a parking lot! It’s across the Street from the Festival and a little bit north (closer to Victory Blvd.). There Will be signs and people directing traffic. Parking $10. There is one entrance off of Victory but when you get to the parking attendants it branches into five lanes for you to pay. 2) Handicapped Parking. There is Handicapped Parking (limited) at the festival itself. If you follow the signs to Handicapped Parking you will see it. We try to save as many spaces as we can for Handicapped Parking. Getting there early is key! 3) There is free parking on Woodley Ave. Please read the signs as they are new since last year. Do not park on the center median! 4) We highly recommend parking along the Metro Orange Line Hight-Speed-Bus route. If you’ve never taken it before it’s just like the Metro but they decided to make them busses instead of trains. There are three Stops with with large parking lots within a few miles of the Woodley Ave stop. Taking the Orange Line is less expensive than our parking lot and you may avoid long waits for the parking lot. To the West there is the Balboa Orange Line Station just south of Victory Blvd. and two lots at the Reseda Orange Line Station at Reseda Blvd. and Oxnard Blvd. – one on each side of Reseda Blvd. To the East there is a massive parking lot at the Sepulveda Orange Line Station. It’s not right on Sepulveda but you can find it using a map app. 5) We also highly recommend taking Lyft or Uber to the park. ATM We will have five or six ATMs this year! One will be near the Merchandise Booth near the entrance and the rest will be scattered throughout the park by the food and non-food exhibitors and one in or near the Oasis Beer and Wine Garden. We still suggest bringing cash with you to the event. Most of the exhibitors will take credit cards as well these days.
