Veg Fest 2013: Help with the social media promotion!

Veg Fest/YogaFest is fast approaching, and now the social media blitz must begin!

We’re asking all friends of Veg Fest and the NCVA to help us get the word out about the 5th Annual Veg Fest, which will be combined this year with Yoga Fest in a two-day extravaganza of awesomeness.

The Thumbnail!

Here’s what you do: Download this picture. Then use it as your Facebook thumbnail and/or your twitter picture.

Then, if you want to be even more awesome, download this picture, and use it as your Facebook cover photo.

Easy as vegan pie, right?

With any luck, facebook and twitter will be a sea of Veg Fest/Yoga Fest photos in the weeks leading up to the event.

Thanks for all your support, and we’ll see you on June 22-23!

Veg Fest ’09 and ’10

The NCVA is small, but mighty: In 2009 and 2010 we put on two Veg Fest events at Ottawa’s Glebe Community Centre, which attracted a combined 4,000 attendees! Pretty amazing for a tiny, 100% volunteer-run organization.

Each Veg Fest (title sponsored by The Table Vegetarian Restaurant: http://www.thetablerestaurant.com) featured roughly 30 exhibitors, three food demonstrators, and three guest speakers. A silent auction raised funds for the NCVA. Other sponsors have included ZenKitchen, Green Earth Vegetarian Restaurant, Rainbow Natural Foods, and Market Organics.

Our guest speakers have included high profile names including Brenda Davis, RD (www.brendadavisrd.com), Jae Steele (www.getitripe.com), Gene Baur (www.farmsanctuary.org), and Dr. Michael Greger (www.drgreger.org).

We are currently sorting out the details for Veg Fest ’11. Stay tuned for more information!
