Wilmington Vegan at the Wilmington Earth Day Festival, Saturday April 22nd!

The 2017 Wilmington Earth Day Festival will take place Saturday, April 22nd, from 12-6pm at Hugh MacRae Park. The theme this year is “Building a Better World” Perfect! Going vegan is better for the animals, better for us, and better for the planet! 

Wilmington Vegan will have a table at this extremely well-attended event with information, handouts, coloring pages for the kids, and our beautiful smiling faces!

In 2014 we made history as the first vegan group represented at the Earth Day Festival. Come join us again this year, chat with us while listening to bands including local vegan band Folkstar (2-4pm), and learn from the wide variety of organizations in our area. Plus, it’s free!

Wilmington Vegan April Potluck Sunday, April 23rd, 5:30pm!
Theme: Breakfast!

Everyone loves breakfast!* Let’s get together and share our favorite vegan most-important-meal-of-the-day yummies! Bring any breakfast-inspired vegan dish such as tempeh bacon, tofu scramble, roasted potatoes, pancakes, waffles, muffins, crepes, breakfast enchiladas, french toast, mini quiches, biscuits and gravy, hash browns, fruit plate, oatmeal bars, scones, etc.

The purpose of this event is to make (or purchase) a new or favorite dish to share with others, get together and socialize with other like-minded folks, and enjoy small samples of the yummy vegan dishes everyone else brings. Please bring a good amount of food to share and extra if you’re bringing children or there’s more than one person in your party.

Bring a list of ingredients along with your dish (or even better, the recipe!) Remember: this is a vegan safe-space event and DISHES MUST BE 100% VEGAN, with no meat, no fish, no milk, no butter, no eggs, no chicken stock, no honey, and so on. Please ask if you have any questions. Please also bring YOUR OWN UTENSILS, BOWL, PLATE and drink. This is a 100% WASTE-FREE EVENT which means we are not generating any trash – please bring only reusable items, no paper or plastic. Alcohol is permitted.

Our potlucks take place the FOURTH SUNDAY of every month (except Nov & Dec) at 5:30pm at the Kitchen & Lounge Community Building at South Front Apartments. Use the gate located on Greenfield Street at 2nd Street, across the street from Satellite Bar. PARKING: Drive straight in all the way to the end of the road and turn right to find parking. Parking is permitted only in the spaces without numbers. After parking, walk over to the lounge located at the center of the complex. The lounge entrance is on the opposite side (facing Front St).
