Albany VegFest brings together the global health benefits of green sustainable living, environmental awareness, and compassion for animals and all beings. On Saturday November 15th, 2014 / 10am – 5pm, there will be a host of speakers, vendors and vegan food selections at the Polish Community Center, 225 Washington Avenue Extension in Albany. 

The keynote speaker this year will be Will Potter. Potter is an award-winning journalist, author, and TED Fellow based in Washington, D.C. who focuses on the animal rights and environmental movements, and civil liberties post-9/11.

His reporting and commentary have been featured in the world’s top media outlets, including the Washington Post, NPR, Rolling Stone, El Pais, and Le Monde.

He has testified before the U.S. Congress about his reporting, as the only witness opposing the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act.

Other talks will be held by Neil Hornish, Bruce Friedrich, Milton Mills and a cooking demo by the Black Metal Vegan Chef.

We will be attending this event as well and hope you stop by to check out our t-shirts, lunchbags, cookbooks and more! Get more information and directions right here.
