4th Annual New York City Vegetarian Food Festival: Doctors, Chefs, Athletes, and Authors to Headline the Amazing Weekend

nycvff postcard 2014 finalCardiologists, restaurant owners, vegan chefs, and world-class athletes will be among those taking the stage at the 4th annual New York City Vegetarian Food Festival, March 1-2, in Manhattan. There will also be more than 100 vendors of vegan lifestyle products and foods, many offering samples. Rounding out the attractions will be stand-up comedy, craft activities and storytelling for children, and a raffle benefiting the New York Coalition for Healthy School Food.

Festival organizers said the event is designed to appeal to a variety of consumers, not just vegans/vegetarians. “Don’t let the name mislead you. This Festival is for non-vegetarians and vegetarians alike,” said Festival co-founder Sarah Gross. “If you’re interested in good food, new products, health and wellness, or simply looking for something entertaining (and educational) for both you and your kids, this is a must-attend event!” The Festival is presented under the auspices of the U.S. Veg Corp. It was launched in 2011 as a one-day event. However, overflow crowds and an entrance line stretching 4 city blocks for most of the day convinced the organizers to double capacity. “The interest in this event has been incredible with people traveling from all over the world to attend. Every year we strive to make the event bigger and better to keep up with the demand and provide patrons and participants alike an enjoyable experience with lots of take-aways,” said the Festival’s other co-founder, Nira Paliwoda.
