Saturday, October 31 – Sunday, November 1 – Boston Vegetarian Food Festival

The Boston Vegetarian Society presents The 14th Annual Boston Vegetarian Food Festival on Sunday, October 31 from 10 am – 6 pm and Sunday, November 1, from 10 am – 4 pm, at the Reggie Lewis Athletic Center, 1350 Tremont Street, with a subway stop directly across the street.  Free admission, free parking, and free food sampling!  The burgeoning success and popularity of this Festival has led the organizers to expand the Festival to a two day event.  The Festival brings together an amazing array of vegetarian natural food providers, top national speakers and chefs, and educational exhibitors in a fun and welcoming environment.  You’ll have the chance to talk directly to food producers, learn the newest items in the marketplace, taste food samples, shop at show special discounts, or simply learn what vegetarian foods are available and where you can find them.

Whether you are a longtime vegetarian or vegan, or someone simply wanting to add more healthy and delicious foods to your meal repertoire, or if you are just curious what it’s all about, you are welcome here.  You can also learn of ways to benefit the environment, help animals, and enhance your health and well being.  Speakers last year included Sarah Kramer, author of How It All Vegan! , The Garden of Vegan, and La Dolce Vegan, and Danielle Nierenberg, a leading expert on animal agriculture and sustainability.  Danielle is a Senior Fellow with the Worldwatch Institute and has authored significant reports addressing the damaging effects of factory farming on the environment, human health, and communities.  You may also hear jae steele (who abjures capital letters along with meat), a Toronto-based registered holistic nutritionist and the author of Get it Ripe – a fresh take on vegan cooking and living.  T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., is a giant in the field of nutrition research, and author of The China Study, a comprehensive study of the connection between diet and disease.  The list of 2009 speakers includes Emilie Hardman, author of The Conscious Kitchen, and more information can be obtained on the website
