The Latest Buzz - Festive Firsts
An early peek into VegFest Oahu’s lineup. One of our performers on the Main Stage will be much-beloved local musician Paul Izak, founder of Yogarden Hawaii, singing his songs of peace and green living. For our Inspiration Speaker Series, we just confirmed Michael Kramer, author and financial advisor at Natural Investments specializing in sustainable and socially responsible investing. In our Learning Kitchen you will get to see cooking demos from expert chefs Sylvia Thompson, from Greens and Vines Restaurant and Down to Earth's very own Deli Manager Edgar Edge. The program is being expanded more and more every day as people learn of VegFest and ask to be a part of this fantastic event. Want to know who and what is next?
