Madison sustains hundreds of annual festivals: beer fests, rib fests, juggling fests, music fests, art fests, book fests, fermentation fests, science fiction fests, comic fests. But the city also has a thriving Vegan community. So it came as a surprise when the apparently successful Mad City Vegan Fest announced they would shut down this year, citing financial losses.
Fear not, however, vegans! The Madison Vegan Fest is rising to fill the void, this Saturday, September 8th at the Madison Area Technical College Truax Campus. The new fest is the brainchild of Molly Stolbov, who joins Buzz host Brian Standing in the studio.
