"This fun, free event with its open-air atmosphere is designed so it's open to all -- with its beautiful location on the edge of Lake Merritt, locals might simply stumble upon it then spend the afternoon discovering the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle. It's outreach at its best, combining speakers, advocacy organizations, education, and vendors, to enlighten all who attend about veganism."
