4th Annual VegFest Windsor
June 9 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
4th Annual VegFest Windsor
VegFest Windsor is a celebration of kindness toward animals, stewardship of the earth and the well-being of people. Fun for the whole family, we have 3 awesome speakers, over 50 veg-friendly exhibitors coming from all over Ontario and an amazing, FREE kids zone with bouncy castle, mini-putt and face painting!
Speaker Line-Up includes
11:00am: Tonia L. Carrier, “The Hows and Whys of Veganism”
This talk is great for people still learning about all things Vegan! Join indie filmmaker, YouTube Vlogger, and light-hearted Vegan activist Tonia L. Carrier for this presentation on what Veganism IS and what it is NOT. Don’t let common misconceptions deter your interest in this ethical and fun dietary lifestyle. Tonia has easy, judgement free suggestions on how each of us can incorporate Veganism into happy, everyday living.
1:00pm: Dr. Joel Kahn, “America’s Healthy Heart Doc” Food Wars: Plants Victorious
The fact that the optimal diet for humans is still hotly debated indicates how difficult nutrition science is to perform and how deep rooted eating patterns are in people’s psyche. The noise of the discussion has gotten louder in the last year with an all meat diet making headlines. Yet, the amount of science indicating the health benefits, planetary advantage, and obvious kindness to animals for plant diet, is breathtaking. The hot diet plans will be discussed and the latest data presented.
3:00pm: Lauren Edwards, Animal Rescue
Lauren Edwards is very active in the rescue community in Windsor and Essex County, working with and hosting adoptathons at her stores for many of the local rescue groups. In 2017 Lauren rescued a 4 day old lamb and it inspired her to start Charlotte’s Freedom Farm – a farm sanctuary for rescued farm animals. Charlotte’s is home to over 65 animals, many with special needs. Lauren will speak about her journey to veganism, starting Charlotte’s Freedom Farm and the animals on the farm and in the industry.
It’s going to be a great day – and we’re expecting even more people than last year’s 3000 attendees. Veganism is going mainstream!
