Funnel cakes, corn dogs, and deep-fried s’mores may seem like the least veg-friendly foods imaginable, but this autumn, Texans will be treated to veganized versions at the Texas State Veggie Fair. The event will return on October 23 for its second year of vegan vendors, cooking contests, carnival games, a raffle, and more. Plant-based dietician Julieanna Hever and Vegucated’s Marisa Miller Wolfson are just two of the many speakers who will be giving presentations. One of the fair’s most popular attractions, a Vegan Fried Food Contest, will have contestants cooking up and competing with their finest cruelty-free gut-busters, like fried vegan mozzarella sticks and even a fried Reuben sandwich. The fair is hosted by dallasvegan.com, and will be preceded by a kick-off party courtesy of animal-welfare group Mercy For Animals.
