More than 5,000 people are expected to attend the 8th annual Atlanta Veg Fest on Saturday, November 9, at the Infinite Energy Center.
Informative speakers, food samples, cooking demonstrations, kids’ activities and more than 100 exhibitors will be on hand to engage and educate people who want to learn more about a vegan lifestyle. The Infinite Energy Center’s exhibit hall will be filled with vegan-friendly vendors selling and offering samples of food and products. Presenters from the vegan community will speak on topics related to veganism, such as animal rights, health, environmental issues, humanitarian issues, and more. Area chefs and additional speakers will talk about how easy it can be to go vegan and stay vegan.
“All of us are volunteers who are passionate about educating people in the community about the vegan lifestyle,” says Leigh Saluzzi, founder and executive director of Atlanta Veg Fest, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. “We want to help normalize the concept of veganism through exposure to vegan-friendly products and services, and to encourage people to take that first step towards a more compassionate lifestyle.”
The Atlanta Veg Fest will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, November 9, at the Infinite Energy Center Forum, 6400 Sugarloaf Pkwy, Duluth. A donation of $5 is suggested at the door. For more info, visit AtlantaVegFest.com.
