Premiere NYC Vegetarian Food Festival Returns and Adds a Symposium to the Menu
NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, May 7, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The NYC Vegetarian Food Festival returns to Manhattan on May 21-22, 2022 for its 10-year anniversary! The festival began primarily as a community event rooted in educating the public on sustainability and the benefits of living a plant-based lifestyle. This 10th installment is expanding on that principle and changing the name to the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival + Symposium. A large emphasis will be on the Symposium element of the event which includes over 60 speakers, panelists, chefs, wellness practitioners, and community member spotlights throughout the weekend, plus more! Always 100% plant-based, it remains a favorite for foodies, locavores, vegetarians, vegans, flexitarians, and those who simply want to find out more about living a healthy, sustainable lifestyle.
The lineup will consist of some familiar faces such as celebrated authors Victoria Moran and Dr. Rob "Doc Rob" Streisfeld who were featured speakers at the very first NYC Vegetarian Food Festival in 2011, to fresh faces to the festival such as Dr. Ietef “DJ Cavem” Vita and Charlise Rookwood aka “Vegan Soulicious”. The topics being covered this year on the Apple Stage are not only timely but are the broadest in the entire history of the event. Attendees can learn about food as medicine, eco-fashion, the mushroom trend, vegan parenting, the use of new technology such as NFTs to do good and so much more!
The festival will continue to feature food sampling and meals from New York City plant-based restaurants and food companies. There will also be health and wellness vendors, vegetarian/animal welfare information tables with groups like Sea Shephard, a give-away benefitting Plant Powered Metro NY and fun-filled activities throughout the day.
“New York has desperately needed an event like this to bring the community together and shine the spotlight on the area’s vibrant vegan food producers, restaurants, and luminaries. This festival will bring the whole spectrum of vegan foods, nutrition experts, chefs, and inspirational lifestyle coaches together in one place,” says co-founder and president of U.S. Veg Corp, Nira Paliwoda, “Having been unable to put on the festival the past couple years due to the pandemic, we painfully understand what it means to need the support from the community. Therefore, we are providing a platform to those individuals and organizations that are passionate about doing good and connecting the dots between the community and the wonderful restaurants and new businesses that, like us, rely on support to keep going.”
