DC Vegfest 2016 Media Coverage

Posted by on Sep 28, 2016 in Client Love, Events, Featured, Public Relations


On Saturday, September 24, 2016, almost 20,000 attendees came out to celebrate the best in vegan food and plant-based living at the 8th annual DC VegFest. Yards Park was the perfect venue for attendees to enjoy more than 130 vegan food and craft vendors, fantastic live music, and presentations and demonstrations from top vegan and environmentally conscious authors and celebrities including Jane Velez-MitchellJustin Harder (The Vegan Roadie); Elizabeth Kucinich, policy consultant at the Plant Based Foods Association; and Torre Washington, an award-winning vegan body builder. It was huge success with a great turnout, and we were honored to be a part of this popular event again. This was our third year handling PR for the festival and we’re again thrilled by the great coverage it received. Check it out here:
