Veggie Fest Hamilton
May 5 @ 10:00 AM - 6:00 PMFree
Now in its 6th year!
The idea of Veggie Fest Hamilton came to Monica La Vella after attending Raw Stock in Niagara on the Lake and the Toronto Vegetarian Festival, both in 2012. At the time, Monica, her young children and (mostly) her husband had been vegetarian for 1.5 years. After visiting both of these events, and having a background in event producing and consulting, Monica wanted to bring the same ideas, support and resources to Hamilton.
She decided to try vegetarianism in 2011 for 30 days when her toddlers wouldn’t eat meat. She thought it would give her a chance to try meatless recipes. In that month, she read Eating Animals, Skinny Bitch and watched a variety of documentaries about our food and where it comes from. After the 30 days were done, she couldn’t look back.
