When I first started volunteering and attending the Detroit-area VegFest, it took place in a school. There were maybe a few hundred people who showed up, and I remember speakers standing at podiums that were in front of children's toys.
Wow, times have changed. Now it's at a convention center, and it is HUGE!
Like last year, I volunteered with Attorneys for Animals.

The food was incredible. Despite trying to be a bit healthy. I totally splurged on vegan Ben and Jerry's, a coney dog from the Russell Street Deli, and macaroni and cheese from GreenSpace.

It just feels so incredible to see people who are interested in plant-based living all coming together. I always get so inspired there! If you haven't been before, I highly recommend it!
