Vegan Olympic skier and nutritionist Julia Murray and business maven and podcaster Andrea Helleman have joined forces to bring the Whistler Vegan Fest to Whistler, British Columbia in June. The weekend festival will be produced and curated by the two long-time locals, bringing running, yoga, a vegan fashion show, food and drink experiences, and a celebrity vegan brunch to the community to spread the message of plant-based health and wellness. A stacked speaker lineup will feature vegan cycling champion Dotsie Bausch and vegan doctor Will Bulsiewicz, MD, among others. “As two local ladies who love being active in the mountains and pursuing health and wellness through our lifestyle, we’re looking forward to sharing Whistler and our local community on a global stage,” Murray told VegNews. “We’re welcoming all vegans and veg-curious to immerse themselves in education, entertainment, adventure, nature, and excitement through these creative, elevated experiences.”
