Veg Fest Organizer Isabelle Tassi on "Talking Animals" Oct. 3
My guest on "Talking Animals" Oct. 3 will be Isabelle Tassi, chief organizer of the third annual Tampa Bay Veg Fest.
The Tampa Bay areaâ€™s only vegetarian/vegan festival and produced under the auspices of Florida Voices For Animals (in honor of the 30th annual observance of World Farm Animals Day), Veg Fest is a big, ambitious, multi-faceted event taking place October 13 at Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park, from 10am-6pm.
Over the years, a number of Veg Fests have been established in North America and worldwide, and the Tampa Bay eventâ€”which is free to attendâ€”features numerous components.
Those components include food vendors from local restaurants offering vegetarian and vegan fare, an array of speakersâ€”including Dr. Michael Greger, a physician, author and noted speaker on nutrition and public health (he uploads a nutrition/food-oriented video every day, available for free at www.NutritionFacts.org)--live music provided by multiple bands, and such acclaimed films as â€œForks Over Knivesâ€ and â€œVegucated.â€
Isabelle Tassi will speak with us live, in studio, on "Talking Animals" on Oct. 3 at 11am, and listeners are invited to participate in the conversation by calling (813-239-9663) or e-mailing (DJ@wmnf.org).
