The love of animals. Vegan food. Live music. Cruelty-free vendors. Animal shelters. Health and wellness providers.
On Saturday, August 4th, there were smiles for miles and an abundance of positive vibes to be had at the Summer VegFest at Walt Whitman High School in Huntington Station. Even the inclement weather couldn't slow down this exceedingly popular event! They just moved the whole festival INSIDE Walt Whitman and set up booths down the hallways and in the cafeteria!
VegFest is vegetarianism-based food festival that is held in cities around the world to promote veganism and vegetarianism, and it is a great way learn more about healthy lifestyles, compassion for animals, and conservation of the environment.
This free event (with a suggested $5 donation at the door) also showcased children's activities, raffle prizes, and a silent auction. All proceeds made from the door, as well as raffles and the silent auction, were donated to Long Island Farm Sanctuary.
