As a lifelong New Yorker, I feel confident when saying that this city is a vegan paradise. Between Candle 79, Pure Food and Wine, Blossom, Coco V, Babycakes, Stogo, Moo Shoes and so many more, there is no shortage of awesome cruelty free food, products or events.

However, something that we’ve never had before is an event that brings all of our amazing restaurants and resources together into one room. That is, until now. On Sunday, April 3rd at the Altman Building on West 18th, NYC will get its very first Vegetarian Food Festival.

While it is a vegetarian food event, the organizers, Sarah Gross, founder of Rescue Chocolate, and Nira Paliwoda, event planner and foodie, are hoping to attract “vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians, locavores, and general foodies.”

The best part? Entrance to the Festival is free! Bring your appetites because there will be plenty of food to sample. Plus live entertainment, activities and info booths for companies and non profits. The website doesn’t list which NYC vendors will be there just yet, but hopefully they will have that information soon.

Fellow New Yorkers, now we have something to be excited about when all of this snow finally clears. See you there!

Of course this act is outlandish, but so is the chicken being served for dinner, even if the picture deemed worthy of sharing is a less easily sensationalized chicken salad.
