Thank you everyone for an amazing day at Veg Fest!

Make a Difference Day ROCKED!

Ambassador wolfdogs Sirius and Orion spent the afternoon giving lucky wolf-kisses to Veg Fest guests and volunteers from IHWN spent the day colouring with kids and educating people about the local sanctuary.

The blood drive was amazing, too! our blood bus was full all day and our impact was saving 63 lives!

We enjoyed being part of the Secular and Humanist tent community at veg fest – it was great to connect with many people and to spread the word about activism, service, educational, social, and other opportunities for involvement  There was a lot of positive response and many meaningful conversations.  Thank you to everyone who came by to say hello – and we hope to see you at an event soon!

Central Florida Veg Fest is one of our favorite events – and this year, it is going to be better than ever!  The 10th Annual Central Florida Veg Fest is on Saturday, October 24th, at Orlando Festival Park, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Central Florida Veg Fest is one of the largest, most well-attended festivals of its kind in the nation.  There are hundreds of vendors – food, beer garden, unique crafts, educational speakers, performance artists, artists corner, animal haven, kids zone, charitable organizations, blood drive, and much more.  And now – a Humanist Community section!

Humanist Community at Central Florida Veg Fest!!!

Picture4Central Florida community of organizations, agencies, and groups for Humanists and secular individuals of all kinds will gather as vendors at a festival. Many of the active local secular groups will be represented.

Come hang out with the local Humanist Community at Veg Fest! We’ll have plenty of chairs, the shade of multiple tents, great folks, a service project celebrating Make a Difference Day, and information about these local activities and groups:

Each of the groups has a different focus, such as fun & social, safe-haven, professional, networking, community service, political activism for faith and/or LGBT equality, educational events & conferences, etc. Some of the groups are exclusively of interest to non-believers; others (like BE.) attract members of minority and majority faith perspectives as well. Regardless of your interest (or mere curiosity) we hope you will visit the Humanist Community at Central Florida Veg Fest.

Make A Difference Day – October 24th!

Picture2

October 24th is Make a Difference Day, a nationwide effort that encourages people to make contributions that improve communities and better lives.

In honor of Make a Difference Day, BE. Orlando will host both a blood drive and an on-site service project for festival attendees.  ARTIST HEROES: Wolves provides uniquely designed pages that make it easy for anyone to draw and color the wolves and wolfdogs at a local sanctuary, raising awareness for the sanctuary and encouraging creative artistry. Participation in the service day project is free, so come by and see what we have going on this year!

The Big Red Bus will be near the entrance. You can make an appointment in advance to avoid wait times, or simply stop by the bus before or after enjoying the festival.

This is a great opportunity for the community to learn about local secular resources, explore involvement opportunities, or just say hello and get to know some pretty awesome people. See you there?
