Twin Cities Veg Fest

Sept. 9
11 a.m.-5 p.m.
Festivals, Food and Drink

This year, Twin Cities Veg Fest is moving outdoors. The yearly free event is all about plant-based foods and diet. It’s a popular happening; last year’s party attracted more than 4,000 hungry vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores. At Saturday’s event at Como Park, revelers will be able to sample a variety of eats, including cheese and meats from the Herbivorous Butcher and bee-free honey brand Honee (it’s made with apples!). Cabaret talent and vegan baker Mistress Ginger will give a cooking demonstration where she’ll whip up something sweet. There will also be organizations and businesses interested in animal programs, eco-fashion, and other positive causes. For more info, visit Parking may be tight; organizers are recommending attendees take the free shuttle running to the fest throughout the day from Rosedale Shopping Center (1595 MN-36, Roseville).
