Hosted by Compassion Over Killing, DC’s vegetarian festival will be at Yards Park this year.

Rain or shine, Washington, DC’s annual outdoor celebration of all things veg is set to take place this Saturday, September 28. The event was founded in 1997 by the Vegetarian Society of DC and is now hosted by animal-welfare group Compassion Over Killing. The festival is free, open to the public, and serves as a forum to educate everyone on the health, environmental, and compassionate benefits of plant-based living. In addition to food samples, the event schedule boasts speakers, cooking demos, animal-friendly merchandise for sale, and activities for every member of the family. Festivities will begin at 11am in Yards Park, and the first 1,000 people in attendance will receive a free gift bag.
