A familiar North Sacramento face will be a featured speaker at the 5th Annual Sacramento VegFest. Chef Brooke Preston, owner of the Green Boheme Restaurant on Del Paso Blvd., will speak at the one day event on Saturday, June 7th. Instead of the simple vendor booth which she and her restaurant have had at the first four annual events, Chef Brooke will be talking about the importance of juices and smoothies as part of the vegetarian/vegan food program as well as part of a healthy food choice for all of us.
One of California’s premiere vegetarian lifestyle events, VegFest is sponsored by the Del Pas Boulevard Partnership and will take place at the Red Lion Hotel in the Woodlake area of Sacramento. The event will be “celebrating vegetarian foods and healthy living”. It will include vendors, cooking demonstrations, book signings, and have local representation of many fresh, locally-grown, gluten- and soy-free options for those interested in eating and living healthier.
General admission tickets are available online for $10. A VIP package is also available for $175 which includes a luncheon with actress/health food advocate Mariel Hemingway at the event, an autographed copy of her book, preferred parking on site, reserved seating for speaker presentations, and a swag bag of great items.
