Alright, so I'm a week late. I'll never win the award for breaking news. I'm just too busy! But, better late than never. Drum roll.....I come to you with less-than-breaking news that the Baltimore VegFest was AWESOME!
It was a fantastically beautiful day with nice cloud cover that kept the warm sun from beating down on everyone. When I arrived at 11 a.m., there was a line around the block to get in because everyone wanted one of the free goody bags that were only available to the first so-many people who arrived! Once that died down, there was a line around the VegFest for Vegan Treats baked goods. Not really a surprise there. Known for their inventive gourmet treats, Vegan Treats has quite a fanbase.
Strolling around the festival, I ran into old friends walking the show and working the booths. Nonprofits were there representing like Vegan Outreach, COK, and Burleigh Manor Animal Sanctuary. Burleigh brought a beautiful goat so me and my brother got a pic with him. Smile!
There were clothing companies with awesome clothing and beauty companies with cruelty-free goodies!
And, of course, there was food and lots of it. I gulped down a delicious juice from Juka Juice and had lunch from the Land of Kush. I quickly wished I had gotten the falafel though as it was loaded with fresh veggies!
The best new item I found there were these amazing caramel peanut butter cupcakes from Vegedible. They couldn't have been any better. Look for more from this budding baker soon!
The festivities included speakers as well, but I missed most of that! How could I listen to speakers when I was busy discovering two new kombucha shops!
All in all, it was a great time. I'm so happy to see the Baltimore VegFest grow and look forward to supporting it year after year!
