Whether you’re vegetarian or a meat-eater you’re bound to love a lot about the upcoming vegetarian festival at the Azalea Gardens at Bryan Park.
There will be plenty of entertainment for the whole family, live music from various artists including The Yes Team and Thomas Coleman. Kids can run and play at the Kids’ Patch with crafts, Jonathan Austin, a Moon Bounce, and a scavenger hunt.
And incase you’re afraid vegetarian food is gross, about two dozen area restaurants are ready to prove you rong with some of the best veggie cuisine around – from Indian (INDIA K’ RAJA), to Thai (Thai Top Ten), to vegetarian sushi (Sticky ToGoGo) to pizza (Fired Up Pizza) and frozen desserts from DeLuca Gelato and Soul-Ice Vending.
If you’ve got a thirst for learning more about being vegetarian you can listen to a dynamic set of speakers at the speakers tent. Mike Goldberg, of WTVR-CBS 6 and WCVE Public Radio, will be the master of ceremonies. Guest speakers will include Danielle Bussone from Veggin’ Out & About, vegan body builders, Derek & Marcella, from Vegan Muscle and Fitness, Kristin Lajeunesse from Will Travel for Vegan Food, and Jane Wilson, a Registered Dietitian.
Don’t forget: bring a can of vegetables to the Festival for the LAMB’s Basket! The LAMB’s Basket is an emergency food pantry located in Lakeside serving the hungry of Henrico County.
