Texas Veg Fest

Texas Veg Fest

Austin, TX
April 6, 2013

Texas Veg Fest is an annual Austin festival that celebrates plant-based foods, with a focus on health, the environment, and compassionate living. The event promotes sustainable organic farming, Vegans and Vegetarians, and Conservation. The event featured live music, local foods, and outreach booths from conservation groups. Sea Shepherd Conservation Society had a successful day of outreach and raising awareness. Many of the events 4000+ attendees came to checkout the Sea Shepherd booth. Current supporters sought information on current campaigns and showed support through donations and merchandise sales. Other event attendees, who had not yet heard of Sea Shepherd, were excited to learn about our conservation efforts, campaigns, and how to help. Our booth was able to sign up new supporters, give out information on how to volunteer, and raise awareness on the world’s marine wildlife and natural habitats. Our seven volunteers worked hard to spread awareness, grow local support, and raise funds for Sea Shepherd. Austin is a progressive city with grass roots movements and environmental concerns. Sea Shepherd support will continue to grow in Austin as we raise more awareness and have a presence at local events. Texas has a famous saying, “Don’t mess with Texas”. As Sea Shepherd volunteers and supporters, we say, “Don’t mess with our Oceans”!
