Recap of the 13th Annual Charlottesville Vegetarian Festival

Despite the generous rain, the 13th Annual Charlottesville Vegetarian Festival attracted several hundred attendees and received a lot of publicity in local papers and on television.

In the chaos of packing up in a downpour, we didn't get our usual tally for the Adoption Fair, but we do know that two of the participating rescue organizations adopted out three deserving animals each. We hope the other organizations had similar success! And Georgie, the rescued potbellied pig from Gallastar Equine Center, was a great ambassador for his species. With his super-affectionate personality and constantly wagging tail, he charmed everyone he met.

We greatly appreciate the support of the Festival sponsors and exhibitors, the dedicated volunteers who worked tirelessly to make the event happen, and the intrepid souls who came to Lee Park to celebrate a humane and healthy lifestyle.
