But aside from stuffing your gullet with all the feel-good reasons you decided to go veggie in the first place, there's actually a pretty neat schedule of events, too. On Saturday morning, the festival will be hosting a classical Egyptian style belly dance class, as well as cooking demos and live music throughout the weekend.
All proceeds from the event will go to For the Animals, a farm animal sanctuary located in Blairstown, New Jersey. Now go and watch this super adorable video of Herbie, one of the sanctuary's baby steers, get really excited about a volleyball after the jump.
