Veggie Fair to Showcase Dominick Thompson

Texas Veggie Fair, the largest and longest-running plant-based festival in Texas, returns for the ninth year from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., October 27, at Reverchon Park, in Dallas. Tens of thousands of guests are expected to enjoy a variety of plant-based foods, products from local and national vendors, speakers, cooking demonstrations, a beer garden, yoga, kids’ activities and more. Live music will be performed by local artists on the Blue Circle Media Music Stage.

Activist, athlete and entrepreneur Dominick Thompson will be making his first appearance in Texas to deliver a talk, Redefining Masculinity Through Veganism, and Dr. Douglas Won, a local surgeon, will speak about the health benefits of a plant-based diet.

Chefs include Cafe Momentum Sous Chef John Mercer and Daniela Lais, co-author of the Vegan on the Go and Easy Vegan Baking cookbooks. There will also be panels on eating and training as a vegan athlete, plant-based health and nutrition and more.

The fair’s mission is to assemble, educate and expand the plant-based community regionally, nationally and worldwide; display alternatives to the reality of destructive and violent food production; and provide a positive, entertaining and educational experience in a fun, welcoming environment.

Admission is free. For more information, visit
