Harvest Vegfest Celebrates Community, Compassion and Sustainability

Aug 31, 2018 12:37PM

Harvest Vegfest, York’s inaugural one-day event celebrating plant-based living, will be held from noon to 7 p.m., September 22, with the family-friendly film, Babe, screened from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at Cousler Park. There will be plant-based food, vendors, kids’ activities, live entertainment, cooking demonstrations, a pie-eating contest, free yoga and much more.

Organized by the Animal Advocates of South Central PA, whose mission is to spread compassion for animals in a peaceful and respectful way, Harvest VegFest hopes to inspire kindness to all creatures, large and small, as well as bring awareness of the health and environmental impacts of a plant-based diet.

“Harvest Vegfest will spotlight the wonderful abundance of local produce from York county and the surrounding area. We are excited to celebrate community, health, compassion and sustainability,” says Director Adrienne Williams. “Sustainability and environmental consciousness are extremely important to us. We decided to make this a zero waste event through composting and recycling.”

Attendees and vendors can help with the zero waste effort by bringing reusable water bottles, utensils and straws, as well as containers for food and bags for purchases.

Admission is free. First 100 people in line at the event (at Pavilion E) will receive a free early bird goody bag. Parking, paths and restrooms are wheelchair-accessible. Bring chairs or blankets for the film screening. Location: 1060 Church Rd., York. For more information, call 717-887-4906, email [email protected] or visit
