Picked up tons of brochures, menus, cards and guides from vendors, restaurants, the Critical Animal Studies program at Brock University, and organizations like Cedar Row Farm Sanctuary and Toronto Pig Save. The stuff above is just a sampling.
Organizers of the inaugural 2012 Niagara VegFest did a great job and 1250 people dropped by throughout the day. Take a peek at their photos, but don't be fooled -- they were taken BEFORE all the folk were packed in! Kid you not, at times you couldn't even move, which on the one hand was great (yay, there's a huge interest in this event!), but also a bit ironic, I thought, given that one of the things we vegans are trying to eradicate is beings being overcrowded, snort. ;)
There were workshops, great speakers, raffles, lots of yummy food (I sampled oatmeal cookies, raw pumpkin cheesecake, massaged kale salad and chana masala for lunch), there were books, tees and pins to be bought, and the day closed with a screening of Vegucated. I had to leave early in the afternoon so missed the film, but am already looking forward to the festival next year. Well done EVERYONE!
Oh, and because this year's festival was such a success, organizers have already promised a bigger venue next time. Woot!
