Delicious Vegan Living 101

The 3rd Annual Sonoma Veg Fest


This year, Crafty Earth Mama visited the 3rd Annual Sonoma Veg Fest to share a reading of her book, Where Does Dinner Come From? and celebrate healthy eating and responsible living with her two children.

Check out their adventures at the Sonoma Veg Fest, below!

So much fun at the 3rd annual Sonoma County Veg Fest! This year the Veg Fest was held at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts located in Santa Rosa, CA.

I attended the Sonoma Veg Fest this year for a reading of my children’s book about plant-based eating, “Where Does Dinner Come From?”

I have two children who have been vegan since birth and we love a good festival with yummy vegan eats and cruelty-free goods!

The book reading was filled with smiling little ones, eager to try the freshly-picked tomatoes and kale that my children brought to the festival from my family’s community garden!

As I read, they shared stories of their own garden and favorite fruits and veggies to eat.

After the book reading, we wandered through the Veg Fest, gathering information and trying delicious foods and snacks.

My favorite pick of the festival was this Almond Dip from La Onda. I could have stood there eating it all day!

It was heating up outside and the kids were getting hot, so we treated ourselves to some delicious cold beverages!

We missed trying Fairyella Ice Pops and Vixen Kitchen Ice Cream, but they both looked amazing!
