Vegetarians everywhere UNITE! Join LA’s first
VEGGIE PRIDE PARADE and help make veggie history

The festivities will begin at 11:00 am at Culver Events, where “veg heads” will register, enjoy a pre-march rally with veg entertainment and a special keynote speaker to rally the veg troups for our historic march. At noon we will begin a 5K walk through Venice with participants adorned with eye-catching costumes and thought provoking signs to educate people about the humane, environmental, and health benefits of a vegetarian diet.

After the march we will gather for a post-parade rally to celebrate the vegetarian lifestyle, with special guest presentations, music & veg entertainment, costume contest, and of course, a smorgasbord of vegan food from our area’s top veg restaurants.

Guest Speakers include:
Rory Freedman, Author of Skinny Bitch and other Skinny Bitch books and tapes.
Karen Dawn, Author of Thanking the Monkey: Rethinking the way we treat animals.
Kenneth Williams, America’s first champion vegan body builder.
Lorri Houston, Founder of Animal Acres and Co-founder of Farm Sanctuary.

Musical Entertainment by: Truth on Earth, Monogroove, Crazy Aunt Mary.
