VSDC Life-Affirming Thanksgiving
VSDC was honored to celebrate a spectacular Thanksgiving in November 2015!. Our Life-Affirming Thanksgiving is an annual event that brings together vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike to enjoy compassionate and healthful all-vegan food in a wonderful social setting. Our programming includes a keynote speaker, live music, exciting door prizes, a silent auction fundraiser, and exhibitors.

The DC VegFest at Yards Park was another wonderful success! An estimated 10,000 people brought their smiles and were the sunshine for another great event on Saturday, October 3, from 11 am to 6 pm. Founded by the Vegetarian Society of DC in 1997 and hosted by our wonderful friends at Compassion Over Killing, this FREE festival highlighted the many benefits and joys of choosing veganism in our world today. We hope you had as much fun as we did and will see you there again next year!
The Vegetarian Society of DC is excited to revitalize its Cooking Classes!
The classes are completely vegan and at low cost, with a further discount for VSDC members. VSDC will include food demonstrations of three simple, creative, and healthy dishes, a Q&A, a short segment on good nutrition, food sampling of the prepared items, and time to mingle and socialize.
See calendar on our Meetup page for upcoming classes.
