We are thrilled to be hard at work on the 2ND ANNUAL HUDSON VALLEY VEGFEST!

Already shaping up to be bigger than last year, Hudson Valley Vegfest 2018 is going to be a celebration of vegan ethics, lifestyle, education, food and fun! In the same fantastic, soaring indoor bright space in Poughkeepsie NY (Gold's Gym... complete with astroturf!) HV Vegfest happens NOVEMBER 3-4, 2018, rain-or-shine,  and is changing the landscape of food festivals in the Hudson Valley.

Who says food can't be DELICIOUS, FILLING, NUTRITIOUS and ETHICAL?!  It's about time the vegan profile was raised in the HV. Stay tuned to for updates at this website and the HV Vegfest official site:

(And just a note: The Institute is going officially non-profit in 2018, and all net proceeds from the festival go to support the Institute's growing animal rescue, advocacy and care efforts. The festival is helping build the dream and help us help more animals! Thank you for your interest and support of this event!)
