Last year the Vegan Fest attracted over 4,000 attendees! This year’s event promises to be bigger and better at the Alliant Energy Center. From curious omnivores to longtime vegans, everyone can enjoy delicious vegan food and find helpful information on protecting animals, the environment, and your health. Enjoy excellent speakers, such as Dr. Michael Greger (a favorite of VIM members!) and the Green Owl Café’s pastry chef who will demonstrate how to make a delicious vegan cheesecake. For details about the Vegan Fest, visit www.veganfest.org. Pig Minds Brewery is a major sponsor! Canterbury Books & Tours is providing bus service to and from Madison. The cost is $38/person for transportation; admission is free to the Vegan Fest. Complimentary coffee, tea, and muffins will be provided by VIM board members. Bus schedule: Meet the bus at Highcrest Centre parking lot, 1662 N. Alpine Rd., at 8:30 a.m. Leave Madison at 5 p.m. This will give us time to take in all events.
