The Tampa Bay area’s only vegetarian/vegan festival, Tampa Bay Veg Fest, makes its return Saturday, October 15, 2011, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in a new location — Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park, in a beautiful setting on the Hillsborough River in downtown Tampa. The park is conveniently located across the street and just to the south of the St. Pete Times Forum. Parking is available in the adjacent South Regional Parking Garage (601 Old Water Street).

An estimated 3,000 people attended last year’s inaugural event, and this year’s festival promises to be bigger and better. The new festival grounds, in a scenic riverside setting, include air-conditioned indoor meeting rooms for guest speakers, films and kids’ activities, along with improved and expanded facilities for vendors and performers.

The event, presented by Tampa Bay-based Florida Voices for Animals, with Whole Foods Market serving as title sponsor, should appeal to all who enjoy tasty, healthy foods — whether or not they follow a vegetarian or vegan diet. The food booths drew rave reviews last year, and local vendors are expected to again impress attendees.
