The 2011 edition of DC VegFest is looking pretty awesome at 4 days out. This year's big name speaker will be vegan cookbook author Isa Chandra Moskowitz. Seeing Isa would be enough for me. She had me at Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, an instant classic title for vegans who like tasty treats. Isa has many, many fans, so I have to imagine that the crowds will be a bit fuller this year. Also speaking will be NBC4's Wendy Rieger and one of the more eloquent speakers on the plight of animals, Wayne Pacelle, CEO of the Humane Society of the United States.
The speakers are awesome this year, yes. But the highlight of this festival is always THE FOOD. My faves from Pennsylvania Vegan Treats will be there; so will DC's Sticky Fingers (also a festival sponsor). Other highlights for me are Burrito Bandits, Everlasting Life and Arlington's Bakeshop. Of course all food is vegan.
Check out DC VegFest's website for more info. But really, no need to investigate, this will be awseome!
DC VegFest happens this Saturday September 24, 11:00AM-6:00PM. Location is the same as last year: GWU campus; on H St NW b/t 20th and 21st Sts.
