pamela Posted May 2, 2009 Share Posted May 2, 2009 The National Capital Vegetarian Association in Ottawa Canada (of which I am President) is presenting Ottawa Veg Fest '09 on May 31, 2009. It will be held at the Glebe Community Centre, 175 Third Avenue (corner of Third Avenue and Lyon Street South) from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. The festival will demonstrate the vibrancy and variety of vegan food and lifestyle, and is presented by the NCVA and The Table Vegetarian Restaurant. Come and sample an abundance of delicious plant-based foods while learning about the variety and vibrancy of veg services and lifestyles in the National Capital Region! This grassroots community event brings together food and lifestyle exhibits from local and national veg businesses and non-profits, and also features food demonstrations and guest speakers. Dozens of exhibitors will be present, and this year's keynote speaker is Brenda Davis R.D., a world renowned leading voice and authour of eight books on vegetarian and vegan nutrition. Yasmin Fudakowska Gow of Montreal will speak on the links between a plant based diet and the environment, and local activist Jason Halvorson will speak on the topic of animal rights and the moral imperative to be vegan. Colourful food demonstrations will help show festival goers how easy it is to transition to a plant-based diet, including "Auntie Loo" of Auntie Loo's treats, Caroline Iishi of Zen Kitchen, and Natasha Kyssa of Simply Raw. Come out and celebrate the diversity of vegetarian cuisine and services in the nation's capital! Admission is free and parking is available in the surrounding neighbourhood.
