A Festival of Vegan Living

Turkeys, cows, goats, and pigs, are some of the many residents that plan attend the Castkill Animal Santuary’s (CAS) 13th Annual Shindig: A Festival of Vegan Living on Oct 11th.

Merging the two concepts of a county fair and a conference together, the Shindig has put an animal-conscious spin on the traditional county fair. Opposite of a county fair, the animals are not bound for slaughter, instead they’ve either rescued from hoarders and industrial cruelty, or were abandoned. On October 11 they join the event to raise awareness to the public about the impact of their food choices on all forms of life.

CAS’s Chef Linda Soper-Kolton will demonstrate how to remake macroni and cheese and spaghetti and meatballs excluding all animal products. Guest speakers include Jonathan Balcombe, author of three books related to the study of animal behavior, and vegan athlete Tim VanOrden. Sanctuary Founder/Director Kathy Stevens will speak about her own life-altering interactions with Sanctuary residents.

The Shindig runs from 11am-5pm. For details and advanced discounted tickets visit the events official website.
