DC VegFest: September 12 at George Washington University

The DC VegFest is a FREE outdoor festival celebrating the very best of everything vegetarian in and around the nation's capital. There are so many reasons to choose a vegetarian diet--for our health, the planet, and animals--and Washington, D.C. offers so many wonderful opportunities to explore meatless cuisine. The DC VegFest has something for everyone to enjoy, so be sure to bring along your friends and family!

The first 400 people who come to the DC VegFest Info booth will get a free 2009 DC VegFest bag filled with goodies from Lara Bar, Pirate's Booty, Follow Your Heart, Vega, and so much more!
