If you show up to the SacTown VegFest on January 27 at Sacramento High School dressed in a vegetable costume, admission is free. Truthfully, admission is free for everyone, but you would look extra fly. Event co-organizer Glenn Destatte said “old standbys” Abyssinia Ethiopian Restaurant, Emma’s Tamales, Conscious Creamery will be selling vegan eats, and Sac High students will fire up the campus’s outdoor pizza oven again. Destatte said they sold about 100 vegan pies during the 2017 fest. A few other vendors include Pure Life Juice Company, The Vegetarian Resource Group, Cowhugger: Vegan Boutique and the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op. There will be a cooking demonstration, a panel discussion led by Dr. Andrew Klonecke of Kaiser Permanente, a dairy detox presentation by Allison Rivers Samson, author and local professor Timaree Hagenburger and more. Find out what “more” is at 2315 34th Street 10 a.m.-4 p.m. in your best artichoke outfit.
