Ottawa Veg Fest
June 6-7, 2015


After taking a year off, Ottawa Veg Fest is back … bigger and better than ever!
Veg Fest is a tradition for Ottawa foodies, vegetarians and vegans, and the veg-curious alike.  Similar events take place all across Canada.  2015 marks the sixth Ottawa VEG FEST, continuing the fine tradition set out by Veg Fest’s founders, the National Capital Vegetarian Association with FREE parking in a great new location.
Samples of great food from some of Ottawa’s best vegetarian restaurant will be available, as part of a marketplace where up to 100 vendors will promote and sell their healthy products and services.  All products sold will be vegan. Veg Fest will also feature an informative speaker series both days, and some exciting new features … which will be announced in the spring.
As in the past, admission to Veg Fest will be by donation and the first 100 each day will receive a free gift bag.  Proceeds from VEG FEST will support worthy non-profit organizations.
Mark your calendars now.  Don’t miss it!
