Whether you're a longtime vegetarian or vegan, or you just want to find new ways to get more fresh and delicious food into your usual daily menu, you'll find what you're looking for at the 17th Annual Boston Vegetarian Food Festival. This event brings together an amazing array of vegetarian natural food providers, top national speakers and chefs, and educational exhibitors in a fun and welcoming environment. It is a chance to talk directly to food producers, learn the newest items in the marketplace, taste free food samples, shop at show special discounts, or simply learn what vegetarian foods are available and where you can find them. Visitors can learn from speakers who are top national experts on health and nutrition, and presenters who inspire compassion for animals and respect for the environment. Award winning chefs and cookbook authors teach their recipes and offer free samples of the dishes they demonstrate. Educational exhibits on protecting animals and the environment, and a children's activity center round out the day. The festival is organized and presented by the nonprofit Boston Vegetarian Society. All festival organizers and event staff donate their time, labor, and talents. Past festivals have each attracted thousands of attendees who come from all over the Northeast and beyond. It's a great opportunity to learn of different ways to benefit the environment, help animals, and enhance your health and well being.
