Recap: June Jamboree Festival

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

On Saturday, June 17, we spent the day with more than 1,400 of our friends and supporters at our 10th annual summer festival, June Jamboree!

For some of our guests, it was their first time meeting our animal residents, hearing their stories, and learning about the Sanctuary’s lifesaving work. For others, it was a day of spending quality chill time with friends made from previous visits.

We also had an incredible lineup of activities this year. The lovely ladies from Buddhalicious, Jenné Claiborne and Isabelle Steichen, talked about the simplicity of living and eating vegan. We were also joined by the VeganMos for a demo and signing of their new cookbook, “NYC Vegan!” And a special thanks to the amazing Terry Hope Romero of Veganomicon for MC’ing the event.

While listening to tunes by REAL THINGS, our guests enjoyed vegan macarons, burgers, donuts, and other award-winning food from our fantastic vendors: Cinnamon Snail, Peaceful Provisions, bryt life foods, Lagusta’s Luscious, Sweet Maresa’s, Risotto Burger, Like No Udder, Gone Pie Bakery, and more.

After getting tatted by artists from Gristle Tattoo, guests dropped into yoga sessions, picnicked on the fields overlooking our animal pastures, and brought the kids over for face painting and water slides.

We were also joined by a few of our awesome Pasture Partners — Smart Beer, Treeline Cheese, Homestead Body, and Chickpea and Olive.

A huge thank you to all of the visitors, vendors, and staff that made this weekend’s June Jamboree a huge success. All of the money raised from the event goes directly back to the animals and our work on behalf of farmed animals everywhere. It is always truly amazing to be surrounded by such a large community of compassionate people. We can’t wait to see you at our next event!
