FARMINGTON — Get your taste buds ready to enjoy some healthy and delicious foods: VegMichigan will hold its annual VegFest 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sept. 12 at Riley Park, at 33113 Grand River Ave., in downtown Farmington.
Several vendors will set up shop so visitors can sample and stock up on their favorite plant-based foods. The free outdoor event will include live music from Sinjon Smith. Also scheduled to make an appearance is fan favorite Clark the Juggler. There will be giveaway bags for the kids with coloring sheets, crayons, stickers and a treat.
VegMichigan is a nonprofit organization focused on promoting the health, environmental, and ethical benefits of a plant-based diet by offering a wide range of activities for learning and socializing.
Jack’s Quality Beans, Detroit Jerky, Better Health Market & Cafe, and Chive are the VegFest event sponsors. The event is open to everyone, not just vegans and vegetarians.
“Definitely the focus is having a fun day enjoying some food and great music and getting people to try plant-based foods,” VegMichigan President Tom Progar said. “There’s a huge variety of plant-based foods available. We’ll have a lot of events for kids.”
