World Veg Fest Returns to Golden Gate Park

The San Francisco Veg Society (SFVS) presents the 18th annual World Veg Festival, in celebration of World Vegetarian Day, from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., October 1, at the County Fair Building inside Golden Gate Park, San Francisco.

This award-winning, action-packed weekend features a diverse lineup of influential members of the veg movement—including chefs, physicians, dietitians, authors and activists—who will present on the topics of vegan health, plant-based nutrition, ethics and animal rights.

To tantalize the tastebuds, Veg Fest offers an array of delicious vegan cuisine to sample or buy, and creative vegan cooking demos. Vendors provide vegan-friendly merchandise and products for the whole family to enjoy.

Established in 1968, the SFVS works to promote a plant-based diet for healthy, ethical and sustainable living.

Cost: Free for SFVS members and children 12 and under, $10 all-day admission for adults, $5 for students and seniors. Tickets sold at the door. Location: Golden Gate Park, 1199 9th Ave., San Francisco. For more information, visit WorldVegFestival.com or SFVS.org.
