Saturday, Oct. 22 – Central Florida Veg Fest
The Vegetarians of Central Florida take the familiar phrase “sit and veg” steps further this weekend. The group’s annual Veg Fest celebrates all things leafy green with hundreds of arts and craft vendors, food prep demos by Raphsodic Bakery and Central Florida Raw Food Connections, guest speakers like Ellen Jaffe Jones (“The Veg Coach”) and Colleen Patrick-Goudreau (“The Compassionate Cook”), live music ranging from acoustic folk to alt-rock, and a sci-fi punk-rock dancestravaganza courtesy of World’s Most Alienating Airport. – Aimee Vitek (10 a.m.-6 p.m. at Loch Haven Park, 900 E. Princeton St.; free; 321-331-1859; cfvegfest.org)
