“This is a comprehensive event where vegans, omnivores, skeptics, and the vegan-curious can gather to revel in every aspect of a plant-based lifestyle,” says co-founder Erin Red. “And at a pivotal time, too—veganism has truly made its way into the mainstream.”
The $20 ticket ($30 for both days) gets you access to over 80 food vendors, including vegan hot spots like Gingersnap’s Organic and Candle 79, screenings of documentaries like Vegucated, lectures from vegan celebs and experts like Dr. Joel Fuhrman and Rich Roll, and Jivamukti yoga classes. Proceeds from the event benefit Mercy for Animals and the NY Coalition for Healthy School Food.
Just be sure to leave your leather bag at home. —Jenna Holt
