Sacramento VegFest at Fusion International Arts Center – Jan. 26, 2013

Posted on 25 January 2013 by dubs


Last issue we dedicated the “Taste” section of “Submerge Your Senses” to highlight the second annual Sacramento Bacon Fest (which, if you are reading this before Jan. 27, is still going on), so this time around we figured we would tone it down a little bit and point out something lighter and healthier for our vegan, vegetarian and health-minded readers out there. Enter VegFest! On Saturday, Jan. 26 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. the Del Paso Boulevard Partnership will host the fourth Sacramento VegFest at the Fusion International Arts Center, located at 501 Arden Way, Sacramento. VegFest highlights foods, information, recipes, vendors, speakers and demonstrations of the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle. Their lineup of speakers includes Chef AJ, a vegan/raw pastry chef from Los Angeles and author of Unprocessed: How to Achieve Vibrant Health and Your Ideal Weight; the charismatic and insightful Michael Marks, better known as Your Produce Man; and Emily Webber, a Sacramento-based nutrition and cooking instructor specializing in low-fat, purely plant-based whole foods. Witness a live cooking demonstration by The Green Boheme, Sacramento’s organic, vegan, raw foods restaurant and holistic health center, and watch guest judges taste vegan and vegetarian dishes in four categories (appetizer/small plate, entree, dessert, confection) at the chefs’ competition. Experience all of this and plenty more for just $3 general admission and best of all there is no ticketing fee if you purchase through Brown Paper Tickets. Just type in Vegfest.bpt.me into your web browser and there you have it! For more information about vendors and what to expect at the event, visit http://www.facebook.com/SacVegFest.
