Hudson Valley Vegfest, LLC is pleased to be bringing a major festival event devoted to vegan living to the Hudson Valley. The event will take place in the premier showcase venue known as The Net at Gold’s Gym in Poughkeepsie on September 23rd and 24th, 2017. HUDSON VALLEY VEGFEST (www.hvvegfest.org) is a showcase and festival celebrating all that comprises the vegan lifestyle and world – from the mouth-watering food (and food justice issues), to human health concerns, caring about animals, economic vitality and protecting our environment. This inaugural, annual event will highlight game-changing vegan businesses, organizations, world renowned speakers, filmmakers, vegan chefs, authors, musicians and innovators, both local and from around the country. The exceptional indoor venue (the size of three soccer fields!) can easily accommodate the large crowds that are being predicted, as vegan festivals in other cities are breaking attendance records. Never has there been more interest in veganism and plant-based products, as more and more people become educated about the benefits of veganism for human health, animal welfare and the environment. The Hudson Valley is perfectly situated to take its rightful place as a center for the incredible new vegan and plant-strong economy that is emerging around the globe.
