Vegetarians, this one’s for you.

For the first time ever, the Headhouse Shambles at 2nd and Pine streets hosts Philly VegFest, a day that raises a fork to all of the vegetarian food options in the City of Brotherly Love. Sample an array of food and drinks while learning about the benefits of a plant-based diet.

On Saturday, June 14, enjoy food from restaurants like HipCityVeg, Blackbird Pizzeria, Miss Rachel’s Pantry, Sip-N-Glo Juicery, Sweet Freedom Bakery, V-Street (the new restaurant from the folks behind Vedge) and more.

In addition to plenty of snacking options, listen to the event’s featured speaker, Christina Pirello, a chef, PBS cooking show host and Whole Foods expert, discuss the benefits of vegetarian eating and her work experience.

Additional guests will demonstrate vegetarian and vegan cooking techniques and David Coman-Hidy of the Humane League, the sponsor of Philly VegFest, is slated to share with guests how to become an advocate of vegetarian eating.

Also enjoy shopping from local clothing vendors like Smak Parlour and Grape Cat Clothing and groove to live music provided by the Evan Cline Band.
