Largest Vegetarian Festival in Midwest Celebrates its 10th Year
This year, Veggie Fest Chicago, a celebration of compassionate living started by the Science of Spirituality community celebrates it's 10th anniversary and 150,000 attendees served by moving to a new, larger location.
This year, Veggie Fest moves to the campus of Benedictine University in Chicago suburb Lisle, IL for two days of family fun on August 15 and 16, 2015. With a huge international food court; numerous health professionals speaking on diet, lifestyle, and environmental issues; engaging food demos by restaurant owners, chefs, and authors; a children's tent with face painting, clowns, and crafts; live music from some of Chicago's best bands; over 100 vendor booths to explore; and free admission and free parking, Veggie Fest has become a highly anticipated summer event in the Chicagoland area.
Speakers include Dr. Mason, Chief Operating Officer of the Cook County Public Health System, Arran Stephens, Founder and CEO Natures Path Foods, Karyn Calabrese of Karyn's Raw and keynote speaker Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj.
Veggie Fest attendees can "pledge to go veg" for 14 days by taking the Vegetarian Challenge, complete with recipes, tips, and shopping lists, visit the Learn to Meditate tent for simple instructions that can benefit the body, mind, and spirit and participate in blood and food drives that give back to the community.
