We kicked off another year of DC VegFest by hosting the media party in the Guillén Room at Takoma to about 60 local and national influencers. For the last four years we’ve sponsored DC VegFest and have provided an overflowing buffet of various vegan foods from our catering and regular menu, like vegan “beef” sliders, vegan “tuna,” and house-made hummus with warm pita. Guests also got to try some experimental dishes that might hit our menu soon, like pulled jackfruit sliders and mini vegan corndogs.  Vegan rosé from our menu and beer from DogFish head were big hits.

See you at DC VegFest on September 15th at Yards Park in DC for the Busboys Beer Garden, Food Tent (vegan mac and cheese, anyone?), and Live Music Stage featuring live music performances and storytelling for families, and more.

Live Music Stage Line-Up:

Culture Queen: 11:10-Noon
Spread Love Brass Band: 12:30 pm- 1:30pm
Smile and Wave- Two 45 minute sets: 2 – 4pm
DJ Diyanna: 4:30-5:30pm
