Washington D.C. greenies better get ready! The DC VegFest — Washington’s largest vegetarian celebration — is coming to town this weekend!

The annual event, which is presented by Compassion Over Killing and the Vegetarian Society of D.C., will feature free food samples, cooking demos, educational booths, product vendors and tons of awesome speakers, including Celebrity Chef Tal Ronnen, Miss D.C. Mackenzie Green, news anchor Wendy Rieger and more. Furthermore, the first 400 visitors will receive a free commemorative tote bag filled with food samples, coupons, and information about vegetarian eating.

“Choosing vegetarian foods is one of the best ways we can help protect our health, the planet, and animals,” says Erica Meier, Executive Director of Compassion Over Killing. “The DC VegFest highlights just how fun, easy, and delicious it is to feast on meat-free fare.”

The free event will take place on Saturday, September 11, from 12:00 – 6:00 p.m. at the University Yard at George Washington University. To find out more, visit DCVegFest.com! Enjoy!
