“VegFest is an event for everyone vegan or not – from junk-foodies to the health-conscious, animal and earth lovers, to families and more,” said Shannon Baldwin, founder of Mississauga VegFest. “Whether you just love food and want to eat a mouth-watering doughnut, want to make a global change through animal-free products, or are just looking for a day of free family fun, there’s truly something for everyone!”
Families will have a veg-tastic time in the KidSanctuary with veg-inspired family activities like cooking, yoga, storytelling and more.
