In addition, plant-based cooking demonstrations will be held by a variety of chefs including Pericles Silva of the GreenFare Organic Café in Herndon.

The purpose of this event is to give people an opportunity to learn from and ask questions of those who have already seen life-changing results from plant-based eating. 

At every level from amateur weekend warriors to Olympians and world-record holders, plant-based athletes have experienced profound performance gains in strength, endurance, and mental clarity. The list is constantly growing, including NFL and NBA all-stars, professional boxers, weightlifters, bodybuilders, MMA fighters, runners of every distance, cyclists, auto racers, wrestlers, skiers, baseball, hockey, soccer, tennis, rugby players and many more.

Those attending the Fairfax Veg Fest will also find information that will help them and their friends and families make simple, easy changes to adopt a more heroic lifestyle that saves commoditized animals who cannot fight back when their lives are being taken.

For those interested in environmental issues, there will be information showing that reducing demand for animal-based products could have immensely positive benefits for our planet.

The Fairfax Veg Fest will take place on Sunday, April 24 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. in the large parking lot of the Northwest Federal Credit Union at 200 Spring St., Herndon, VA 20170. Parking will be free. Thousands of people are expected to attend from all around the D.C. Metro area.
