Vendors of WNY VegFest
Here's a silly photo of me in one of those character cut outs. I think someone named this green guy in a purple suit "Cilantro Frank".
In this post I will be sharing some of the vendor tables we visited. Everyone was really nice and fun to be around! I made a few donations at a couple of the tables one being Ester The Wonder Pig. Late last night I found that The Vegan Zombie posted a video about the WNY VegFest AND Ester The Wonder Pig so check out their embedded video at the end of this post.
Eventho I don't consume a lot of meat alternatives I was happy to see Tofurky be a large part of the event. They are a HUGE Vegan company that is for sure! I have tried some items I do like from them. They had another guy that was wearing a HUGE Tofurky Box for the race which was pretty funny. I guess it was the first 5k Tofurky Trot above the Mississippi from what I hear.
Many of them sounded interesting! MAYBE next year we can attend some of the talks, presentations, and seminars!
I really see this event getting bigger and bigger every year! I still think they had WAY more people attend than they originally expected or even hoped for! That's ALWAYS a plus, eh!?
Food donations went to Food Not Bombs. They gave out informational and free sample bags for those who donated something. There were a few snacks in there including some veggie chips and a sample of a Raw Revolution bar.
Tomorrow I hope to have a post about some of the food vendors, too!
