The NCVA will be marching with veggie pride this coming Sunday, August 28, 2011 in the Capital Pride Parade commencing at 1 pm and we want you to join us!
Bring your fellow vegetarians, vegans and veggie-supporters to come and march with us in the parade and to show Ottawa how significant the veg*n community is in the national capital region!
This Sunday’s Pride celebrations are going to be wicked fun. If you can make it this weekend to Pride, don’t miss this opportunity to march with us!
We ask that you wear orange (or green or something veg-related) and show up at the meeting place (Garden of the Provinces) no later than 12:30 pm.
RSVP on Facebook here or via email at ncva (dot) avcn (at) gmail (dot) com.
Can’t wait to see you there!
PS – Come visit the NCVA booth after the Pride parade at the Info Fair on City Hall grounds. Also, we are putting out a call to all bakers out there who would like to donate some bite-sized vegan baked goods to give away at the Info Fair to show how delicious being vegan really is! Please email the above address if you are interested.
Come march with the NCVA in the Capital Pride Parade on Sunday, August 28th at 1:00 PM (meet in advance at 12:30 PM at Garden of the Provinces).
This is a great opportunity to show the strength and numbers of the veg*n community in the national capital region as well as the NCVA’s support of the LGBTQ community of Ottawa!
Respond to this invite on Facebook or by emailing us at ncva (dot) avcn (AT) gmail (dot) com, so that we have an idea of how many marchers will be joining us on the big day.
We will have a banner and we ask that everyone try to wear something orange (or green) so that we look more like a cohesive group. If you want to wear a veggie costume, email us and we will let you know if there is one available. First come, first served!
Don’t forget to bring water to keep hydrated as well as prepare for the weather (hat, sunscreen, etc.).

The NCVA will also have a booth at the Info Fair to promote the association, educate the public on the benefits of a plant-based diet, and expose the resources and welcoming vegetarian community in the national capital region. If you are interested in volunteering/tabling at our booth, please email us with your preferred time (between 12 – 10 pm).
If you have any ideas, questions, or extra RSVP info, you can email us and let us know.

Capital Pride in Ottawa is over 1 month away (Aug. 28, 2011) and the NCVA is not dallying when it comes to ensuring its participation! Capital Pride is an excellent opportunity to get out, show your pride, enjoy your city, and most of all support the LGBTQ community of Ottawa.
Ever feel like marching in a parade??
In the upcoming weeks, more information will come available on how YOU can participate as a volunteer or proud veg*n at Capital Pride this year. For sure, the NCVA will have a booth at the Info Fair to promote the association, educate the public on the benefits of a plant-based diet, and expose the resources and welcoming vegetarian community in the national capital region. Of course, just like last year, we will also be marching in the Parade and we want you to join us!
Stay tuned for more information on costumes, pre-parties, related Facebook event, T-shirts, and sign-up info for volunteer opportunities!
If you have any ideas, questions, or would just like to let us know now how pumped you are for Pride, you can email the NCVA (ncva (dot) avcn (at) gmail (dot) com), or better yet, come out to the next café/pub night taking place next Thursday evening, hosted by… me! (I’m also organizing our Pride participation.) Info for the café/pub night here.
