D.C. VegFest Festival

For the fourth time, we are hosting a booth at the annual D.C. Veg Fest festival, just like last year, to promote vegetarianism, nonviolence and awareness for plant-based proteins.

Event Date: Saturday, September 24, 2016
Time: 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. – Rain or shine!
Address: Outdoors at Yards Park in the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood. Lot H/I, across from Nationals Park

Please support the program event by volunteering and / or donating towards the D.C. Veg Fest. We are looking for volunteers for the booth in one-hour shifts, starting from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. We also need your assistance in bringing daal and rice samples to give out at this festival. This is an excellent opportunity to do a community service project and promote public awareness about Jainism. For more information and donations, please feel free to contact Janak Rajani. If you are interested in volunteering, or someone you know would like to volunteer, please contact Ayush Jain at your earliest convenience.

Additionally, thank you to those who participated in our raffle during the Swapna Ceremony. We have raised over $300 to support our booth at this festival!
