Vegetarian lifestyle shows its roots in Tampa

September 15, 2012 by  

The 3rd annual Tampa Bay Vegfest will take place at Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park next month. It is presented by Florida Voices for Animals and an impressive 3,000 people showed up at last year’s event.

The festival will feature food for purchase from local restaurants, an artists’ corner, live music, animal adoptions, guest speakers such as Dr. Michael Greger and Terry Hope Romero, and the Veggie Kidz Zone with activities such as coloring and face painting. Films and exhibitors will also be around, adding to the range of activities available.

Various exhibitors will be in attendance at Vegfest, including commercial merchants, non-profit organizations, and food vendors. Rental spaces vary, with artists exhibiting at the Artists Corner paying $50, all commercial merchants and food vendors paying $275, and non-profit organizations paying $80 if they are selling merchandise or $30 for an information-only booth.

No doubt those who are planning to exhibit at the festival will be working with Tampa printing companies to help them prepare for this popular event. Arranging for banner printing or sign printing services could go a long way towards ensuring that a booth stands out from the others, thus drawing in more visitors.

This should be a good event for those who wish to learn about vegetarianism and to help them choose if it is a lifestyle they wish to follow. Set to take place on October 13 from 10:00 am – 6:00 pm, there is no charge to attend either. For more information about this event, contact 727-656-8368.
