Bethlehem Vegfest 2012 is Almost Here!

Pick up your free copy of The Mix this week for the special Bethlehem Vegfest feature!

Save the Kales! promotes veganism as an ethical, compassionate lifestyle and any and all suggestions made by me to be part of Vegfest as speakers or vendors are committed to this, too.  


11am-6pm, Southside Bethlehem Greenway

(the linear park between 3rd and 4th Streets)

I was going to make a “Must See” list, but I think you guys can handle it. There will be plenty to see, listen to, watch and eat. Bring your family, bring your dogs. You can find the lineup of speakers and cooking demos HERE, and a list of every vendor HERE.

IN THE MEANTIME… Don’t miss the last few days of Vegfest Restaurant Week!
