[FESTIVAL] In the factory neighborhood around Riverside Park on Buffalo’s northwest corner, chicken wings, pizza, and roast beef usually pass for cuisine. The holy trinity of Buffalo’s palate does NOT approve of this weekend’s celebration of a plant-based lifestyle. Growing into its third year, VegFest returns on Sunday to new digs on the bluff over the Niagara River with an array of activities, vendors of healthy and delicious plant-based food, rescue animals, live music and speakers including include nutritionist Dr. Tom Campbell, and activist and athlete Tim Kaufman. For the rest of the no-meat athletes who wish to indulge, a 5K Tofurkey Trot kicks off the day at 10am (pre-registration required) but the good times roll until 6pm. Event proceeds will benefit the Buffalo chapter of Food Not Bombs, a non-profit that promotes replacing defense spending with spending on sustainable agriculture to end hunger and stave off environmental degradation.
