The meat-free revolution is sweeping through the country, namely Georgia to get specific. There are a number of restaurants in the state that are adding vegan and vegetarian options to their menus, and there are just as many restaurants that are exclusively selling plant-based options. Some of the most mouth-watering vegan restaurants in Georgia are coming together this November for a giant festival, where no animals were ever bothered in the process.
The 8th Annual Atlanta Veg Fest is taking over the Infinite PlaEnergy Arena on Nov. 9, and you're going to want to come with an empty stomach. You'll be able to sample food from a number of different local food vendors. Just because you're sacrificing meat, doesn't mean your sacrificing quality taste.
The list of vendors seems neverending, but its got some fan favorites like:
You'll easily satisfy any type of craving because you'll find sweets, Mexican, Italian, soul food and pretty much every cuisine on this planet.
If you've been confined to eating out because you don't know how to make delicious vegan food in your kitchen, there are cooking demonstrations using products you can find on your own.
Once you've navigated through all the food, you'll be able to take home some keepsakes from clothing to accessories from the local vendors. If you've wanted to showcase your lifestyle to the world on a t-shirt, sticker or pin, this is your chance to stock up on good merch.
Whatever you're looking for, whether it be an inspirational message from one of the badass speakers to learning how to maintain a meat-free lifestyle, you'll find it at this festival.
Just like the Plant-Based Cookout, anyone is welcome! Whether you want to be surrounded by like-minded people or what to find out if this lifestyle can work for you, you're invited.
