Richmond Vegetarian Festival
I was a speaker at the fourth annual Richmond Vegetarian Festival in Richmond, VA, a little under 3 hours by car away. I gave my Why Vegetarian presentation and had a fairly full tent of good listeners and questioners. I was amazed at the size of this event - there were more than 3000 attendees and more vendor booths than we had a chance to visit! We discovered a new bagel company whose bagels we loved and purchased to bring home - Agnes' Very Very Bake'mmm organic vegan bagels. It was delightful to spend time and have dinner with another speaker, my friend Harold Brown from Farm Sanctuary, who gave the primary talk.
