Food, Fun and Animal Advocacy This Weekend

Enjoy Delicious food, free music, powerful speakers and more this weekend at Twin Cities Veg Fest and Their Lives, Our Voices

Come to Twin Cities Veg Fest on Saturday, eat a Vegan Love Waffle, learn about farmed animals, and celebrate compassion with some of our best local musical acts!

Twin Cities Veg Fest is a fun event for people who are interested in reducing animal suffering, thinking about transitioning toward vegetarianism or veganism, or otherwise want to explore the impact of compassionate consumer choice.

Vegan Love Waffles

Speakers include Mercy for Animals' Executive Director Nathan Runkle, and also Farm Sanctuary's Nick Cooney. New this year, Twin Cities Veg Fest will have live music, featuring local artists Sleepyhead, Alison Scott, Sean Anonymous and In Defence. Attendees will enjoy tons of free vegan food samples as well as delicious vegan cuisine offered by food vendors such as Kitty Corner Cafe (creators of the Vegan Love Waffle), Asase Yaa, Flamingo and Seward Cafe!

Twin Cities Veg Fest 2012

Twin Cities Veg Fest is for anyone and everyone – omnivores, vegetarians, and vegans alike! So please invite all your non-veg friends and family! This is a fun, friendly event where they can learn about the animal-friendly community in the Twin Cities. Join our event on Facebook so they see that you're going, and please invite them yourself. For your music-loving friends, we also have a Facebook event for the concert.

The festival will take place from 10am to 4pm at Coffman Memorial Union on the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota. See our location page for more details. The nearest parking is the East River Road Garage behind Coffman Memorial Union.
