A Green Festival in Calgary
VegFest Calgary is an annual day-long festival where participants are invited to learn more about veganism and animal liberation. We are pleased to be partnering with this amazing group of volunteers for the event in 2019 which attracts local food vendors, non-profits and other exhibitors. The festival is primarily about uniting the local community through a shared interest in environmental stewardship (the event has the lowest environmental footprint in the city) and an ethic of compassion to both humans and nonhumans. The event features a variety of performers as well as speakers who inform the audience about animal issues but also highlight the important links between all forms of oppression. VegFest Calgary also works to provide fresh produce to low-income families and to the most marginalized individuals within the local community.
