2013 Texas Veggie Fair – October 20

17 Oct

Each year it just gets bigger and better: The Texas Veggie Fair. A fair designed for DFW vegans, vegetarians and those in support of. On Sunday, October 20th, (from 11am to 6pm) North Texans will gather once again at Reverchon Park in Dallas for this remarkable, FREE event promoting the vegan/vegetarian lifestyle! We promise the food will be just as delicious as your regular State Fair of Texas, but just within a more intimate setting than Fair Park. It only provides a sample of what’s available in the “Vegan” North Texas world though and please note that TVF is a one-day event.
After sinking out teeth into the veggie corny dog and the oh-so-amazing fried cinnamon roll (both pictured below) at last year’s Veggie State Fair of Texas it’s a MUST that we go back! Not to mention, Erykah Badu, is expected to do some DJ-ing at the event. You can catch her Saturday, Oct 19th at the Lamar Street Festival. Then check for @fatbellybella herself on Sunday at the 2013 Texas Veggie State Fair. At one event (the music festival) you’ll see the artist doing her typical song & dance, and at the other event the well endowed Dallas Diva can be caught using her alter ego to DJ in the park!

While fair food is quite a draw, this outdoor festival covers everything vegan/veggie related: vegan products, animal rights, recycling, yoga, product vendors, bio-degradable flatware, chef demos, speakers on plant-based diets, locally-made soaps and more! It’ll be exciting to see live music added to the lineup this year.


The list of vendors and exhibitors continues to grow each year!

3rd Annual Texas State Veggie Fair

26 Sep

If you are a seitan-lover—as in the vegan protein and not our Lord and Savior’s arch nemesis— then you’re in for a treat at the 3rd annual Texas State Veggie Fair hosted by DallasVegan.com. Whether you’re vegan, interested in becoming one, or you just enjoy delicious plant-based cuisine, stop by Reverchon Park in Dallas on Sunday, October 21 to enjoy the celebration. There will be food, live music, guest speakers, and don’t forget the fried food contest. Yes, even vegans know how to get down with the deep fryer.

I’m especially looking forward to the food from Zombie’s Food Truck, a vegan-only food truck whose mission is “bringing your taste buds back from the dead.” I hope they’ll be making their Neftacos Feliz, described as “sweet and spicy shredded seitan tacos with onions, cilantro, guacamole, and pepper pineapple ranch.” They had me at ranch. I think I’ll pair that with a refreshing kombucha from Holy Kombucha and follow it with some coconut ice cream from Nada Moo for dessert.

But besides food, there will also be vendors that cater to greener lifestyles, including Arbonne International Skin Care and Wellness, which makes skin care products with premium botanical ingredients and Eco Armoire which makes “eco-friendly apparel for the chic lady”.

Guest speakers include Ginny Messina, a vegan RD and author of Vegan for Life, a guide for plant-based nutrition. Vegan fashionistas—let’s call them “veganistas”—can also listen to Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart talk about her fashion company Vaute (pronounce “vote”) Couture, a high performance fashion line with no materials derived from animals.

The Texas State Veggie Fair runs from 11AM to 6PM and admission is free, although a $5-$10 donation is suggested. Don’t forget to bring extra cash to buy food at the vendors! The main entrance to Reverchon Park is at Maple Avenue and Turtle Creek Boulevard. If you’re not familiar with the Oak Lawn area, then just plug 3505 Maple Avenue, Dallas, TX 75219 into your GPS.
