2007 Vegan Holiday Festival


Saturday November 3, 2007; 10am to 6pm

Benson High School: 546 NE 12th Ave Portland, OR 97232

In Northeast Portland; FREE ADMISSION



Northwest VEG is pleased to join with Robert Cheeke, the World’s Most Recognized Vegan Bodybuilder to sponsor the 2nd Annual 2007 Vegan Holiday Festival on November 3rd. Everyone from the merely curious to vegan is welcome to attend, and will find easy and simple steps to eat and live in a more sustainable and compassionate manner.


The Vegan Holiday Festival will feature renowned presenters, plus a wide variety of exhibitors and participating non-profit groups will offer information on nutrition and health, exercise, cooking and baking, the environment, and proactive steps for a promising future. Holiday themed and animal-friendly products and services including crafts, gifts, and food will be available.


Presenters include Culinary Expert Chef Al Chase and the Chefs from Blossoming Lotus Café here in Portland, along with many other presenters.


Robert Cheeke, President of Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness, decided to present the Vegan Holiday Festival because of a need to counter the unthinking cruelty that goes on in food and clothing production for the Holiday Season. He wanted a Festival to uplift, inspire, educate and motivate people to make healthier and more compassionate food and lifestyle choices now, and throughout the rest of the year.


Portland was recently voted as the #1 Vegan-Friendly City in America by GoVeg.com, and was placed #2 by VegNews Magazine. The vegan community has been growing in Portland, with a number of new vegan restaurants and stores opening in just the past year. Robert's goal behind the Vegan Holiday Festival is to strengthen our vegan community and to support the vegan companies, businesses, individuals and groups here in the Northwest.


This year’s event features new changes including FREE Admission to all attendees. We expect 1,000 to 2,000 people to attend the 2nd Annual Vegan Holiday Festival this fall.

The website looks awesome!


Wow, looks like this year will be a record breaker. With the Free Admission, I bet you'll get more than 2,000 attendees.


Thanks for making another great vegan event happen. Have a good time in SF this weekend. Today I'll be volunteering at the Walk for Farm Animals.


Go Vegans!!!
