Vegans, vegetarians, and lovers of veggies and all things healthy are invited to participate in the 2nd Annual Rehoboth Beach VegFest being held this weekend. The three-day event, hosted by VegRehoboth, celebrates “how easy and delicious it is to choose vegetarian foods, and the many benefits to human health, animals, and our planet.”
VegFest kicks off on Friday, June 13 with a vegetarian tasting tour at various Rehoboth restaurants and dinner at Hobo’s Restaurant followed by a screening of the documentary The Ghost in our Machine at the Atlantic Sands Hotel.
A free outdoor festival will be held on Saturday, June 14 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., at Epworth United Methodist Church. The festival features speakers, cooking demonstrations, free food samples, national and local exhibitors, kids’ activities, a nutrition tent, recipes, and local food vendors. Feel free to bring your four-legged bestie - the VegFest is pet-friendly and treats will be on hand (or rather, on paw).
The celebration wraps up on Sunday, June 15 with a special brunch at Nage Restaurant, featuring several guest speakers. So whether you are already a devout vegan or interested in learning more about switching to a vegan diet and living a healthier lifestyle, this is a “can’t-miss” event.
Don't forget Dad
