Destination Guide for Vegetarian Vacationers
Philosophy isn't defined by location, by the ever-changing miles. It's instead a steady choice -- and being a Vegetarian therefore can't be denied while wandering along the open road. All adventures must instead be shaped to the ideals of nature, and these five Vegetarian getaways will ensure that no traveler is without relief.
Chicago's Veggie Fest
Tucked on the outskirts of the Midwestern metropolis of Chicago
is Veggie Fest. This celebration -- which began in 2006 -- is among North America's premier destinations for Vegetarians and Vegans. Over 20,000 patrons, vendors and performers arrive each year to indulge in good food and better conversation. It offers live music, international workshops (with tips on how to continue to secure a healthy lifestyle) and family-friendly activities. Parking is free and no tickets are required for entry. The Chicago Veggie Fest arrives in August annually. Scheduled speakers or performers are subject to change, however.
Richmond Vegetarian Festival
Centered within the span of Virginia's beautiful Bryan Park is the Richmond Vegetarian Festival. This annual event -- which is settled within quick miles of Williamsburg vacation rentals
and can be accessed with ease -- offers guests the opportunity to partake in family thrills. Exotic vendors (from Africa, Indian and Asia) offer flavors that can't be denied; and local bands excite with their unique rhythms. This event sponsors more than Veganism: it instead promotes the city's best businesses and entertainments, allowing cultural pride to fuel the day. The Richmond Vegetarian Festival is held each year in June. Dates may vary, however, due to weather considerations.
Boston Vegetarian Food Festival
Vegetarian getaways are meant to delight, and the Boston Vegetarian Food Festival will satisfy even the most fickle of interests. This celebration (which is hosted within the heart of the city) offers over 120 exhibitors: local stores, publishers and educators band together to provide guests with an interactive experience. Food can be sampled for free; recipes are traded; and national speakers claim the afternoon with innovative and entertaining topics. It's a can't-miss experience. The Boston Vegetarian Food Festival occurs each year in October. There are no admission or parking fees. Why not book your Boston rental
VegFest of Orlando
Nestled on the outskirts of Orlando
is VegFest. It is often touted as one of the country's (and the world's) most prestigious events. This annual celebration provides guests with hundreds of vendors and speakers, as well as offering a Humane Education Center. This allows individuals to experience the horrors of factory farms and provides ways to battle the mistreatment of animals. Dogs, cats and more are even allowed to join the festivities, making this a true family affair. The VegFest of Orlando is held in October. Guests must arrive early to secure parking as this is a popular event. Rental properties will provide relief for this issue, however, offering access to public transportation and sparing individuals the horrors of traffic. Comfort can also be convenient.
Charlottesville Vegetarian Festival
Boasting a history of social awareness, the Charlottesville Vegetarian Festival (in Central Virginia
) is among the best Vegetarian getaways. For over 15 years this event has offered lessons of healthy living to Virginia. 6,000 visitors experience a variety of activities each year: from live entertainment to cooking exhibits to even pet adoption opportunities. This is a celebration with a cause, and guests are able to gain the wanted support from groups like Vegan Outreach, PETA and United Poultry Concerns. It's an educational experience that will not disappoint. The Charlottesville Vegetarian Festival is held in September. Weather does not influence the date and guests are therefore recommended to be aware of all forecasts (preparing accordingly for rain or other complications).
