2012 Vegan and Vegetarian Festivals, Events and Conferences

Summer brings a variety of veg events to the U.S. and Canada. Attend an event near you, or make a vacation out of it and take a road trip. These events also need volunteers, which is a fun way to get involved and meet people. Either way, you are sure to have fun, meet some like-minded folks and learn something new.
