Texas State Veggie Fair 2012

Can you smell it in the air? It’s fall. Which means state fair time. And the Texas State Fair also means the Texas State Veggie Fair. The third annual Texas State Veggie Fair will be at Reverchon Park in Dallas on Sunday, October 21. Besides the usual carnival games for kids, vegan eats, and music, this year’s fair features an art contest for all ages and a fried food contest.

Art entries can be photography, paintings/drawings, or creative writing. I’m looking forward to seeing entries for the 10 and under category, because nothing makes my heart melt more than a six-year-old’s drawing of dancing vegetables. Deadline for art submission is Sunday, September 16. That’s this Sunday, so get drawing!

2012 speakers include Gene Bauer, founder of Farm Sanctuary, and Ginny Messina, coauthor of Vegan for Life.
