Free admission, free parking and a wide assortment of vegetarian fun for the whole family are expected to attract 30,000 visitors in the festival’s ninth year.

Attendees can expect delicious vegetarian food, food demos with vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and raw food dishes and leading-edge information from doctors and specialists in vegetarianism, spirituality, organic food and eco-friendly living.

On both days, His Holiness Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj, an internationally renowned spiritual master and bestselling author, will deliver keynote talks on vegetarianism and spirituality.

In addition to more than 100 exhibitor booths, there will be kid-friendly activities that include face painting and arts and crafts.
