That's right, you heard it here! So if you are looking for a little excitement this summer while exploring the beauty of veganism, join us on Saturday, July 27th and let your taste buds sing with flavor as you indulge in a variety of gourmet vegan cuisines.
The celebration will feature dishes prepared by locally skilled chefs including chefs from On the Go Gourmet, Farmacy Vegan Kitchen, Good Mood Food, and Oh My Cod Vegan Seafood.

Relax in the garden with all your yummy things and get comfy on your blankets where you can enjoy the captivating ambiance of nature and music.
Perusing the park, you’ll find tons of ways to celebrate healthy living. Ask questions about veganism and clean eating during fun, educating workshops. Discover vegan friendly businesses offering art, jewelry and handmade textiles as well as organic farmers supplying fresh produce and fruit trees for planting.
