Each year, Vegetarians of Central Florida hosts VegFest, which has become one the biggest and best vegetarian festivals in the country! Going into its 10th year, VegFest offers something fun for everyone. There are great speakers, hands-on food demonstrations, an animal haven, live music, and they even have a “veggie kids zone.” This year’s event will be held on Saturday, October 24, at Orlando Festival Park from 10 am to 6 pm.
On the first Monday of each month, the group Vegetarians of Central Florida hosts its very popular vegan potluck at the First Unitarian Church of Orlando. Attendees are asked to bring one of their favorite vegan dishes along with a complete ingredient list to share amongst the group. For the non-cooks, a $10 donation is requested.
This is no small event. The event that I recently attended had at least 50 people. So, there were a lot of great dishes! The best part is that everyone is invited. You do not need to be a member of the Vegetarians of Central Florida to take part in the monthly event.
If you are new to the area, new to meat-free eating, want to experience something new in the city, or want to meet a few new people, I invite you to participate in this monthly event.
Be sure to check out the video to see an inside peek into the vegan potluck!
