Yummy Plants: a vegan lifestyle website and community. We can help you start a vegan diet!
Texans, get ready for a day of live music, guest speakers, cooking, and fun! Venture out to the first ever Austin Texas VegFest Saturday, March 31, at the Fiesta Gardens West End from 11am to 6pm. The festival will promote and celebrate plant-based diets for a healthier and sustainable future.
Sponsored by Whole Foods Market, the festival is set to include cooking demos, activities for children, beer, and of course, food. Vendors include Mary’s Gone Crackers, Earth Balance, and So Delicious Dairy Free. And that means samples… YUM! If you haven’t sampled the So Delicious Dairy Free line of coconut milks, yogurts and ice creams, you’re in for a real treat! New vendors are being added, so check the Texas VegFest site for the complete list of Texas VegFest vendors.
And of course, no VegFest is complete without the amazing speakers who educate and inspire us!
