July Jamboree 2014
Saturday July 5th from 11 – 5: Fabulous veggie food trucks and booths, live music, a cooking demo, kids’ activities, magic tricks, a groovy tag sale at our 8th Annual July Jamboree!
Spend the day and meet over 300 friendly rescued cows, pigs, goats, turkeys and more! Try some of the best veggie-based food out there and learn more about why we think farm animals should be friends, not food.
Check out best-selling author Terry Romero’s cooking demo and enjoy great live music. See photos from last year’s Jamboree for a preview.
ADMISSION at the door: Adults $10, Kids/Seniors $5, Members & Toddlers Free! All activities are free but food and face-painting are additional charges. View the schedule >here<. Driving directions >here<.
Want to eat at the Yelp’s 4th Top-Rated Place in the whole USA? The Cinnamon Snail vegan food truck is rated that high, and so we’re especially stoked to steal them away from NYC for the day to serve up their sophisticated take on street food and desserts.
Equally unique is Like No Udder — the world’s first all-vegan soft serve ice cream truck, coming all the way from Rhode Island.
More local but no less legendary is Aba’s Falafel, whose fluffy chickpea-based sandwiches and flavorful condiments are the darling of farm festivals all over the Hudson Valley.
Plus a variety of grilled and freshly-prepared prepared foods by chef and restaurateur David Silver.
And don’t miss a lively and informative cooking demonstration by Terry Hope Romero, author and co-author of bestselling cookbooks Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook, Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, and Viva Vegan!: Authentic Vegan Latina American Recipes and her newest, Salad Samuri. Terry will also be signing some of her famous cookbooks!
Got desserts? Now you do! Bethlehem, PA-based Vegan Treats is supplying a bunch of their amazingly amazing sweet selections.
Best known for their cult hit “David Duchovny (Why Won’t You Love Me),” NYC indie music veterans Bree Sharp and Don DiLego of Beautiful Small Machines will be performing live! You’ve heard their upbeat, clever songs used in all sorts of tv commercials and on radio stations across the country.
We’re pleased to welcome back one of our favorite artists of all times: Elizabeth Mitchell performing with her family band You Are My Flower. Elizabeth is a Smithsonian Folkways Recordings artist, who has released seven highly-praised and popular albums of children’s music that appeals to both young and old.
Also joining us will be the appropriately-named trio Meanderthal, who will play their way through several decades in no particular order: “You’ll enjoy the ride as you are clubbed over the head with extremely slow rapid fire weaving of expression from Dub Step to Two Step, Trip-hop to BeBop, Devo to Diva, Indie with Bindi’s…” with Ray Ippolito, Josh Kutchai, Brian Prokop.
Also you’ll enjoy of the stylings of ukelele artist Derek Goodwin.
Kids will enjoy a bouncy-castle, hula-hooping, face-painting, and recycled art-making by Scrapkins. Plus food to satisfy even the finickiest palette.
Closeup magician Eric Walton will be here to make your brain hurt with his mind bending illusions. So it’s a good thing we also have a vegan physician Dona Braghieri fielding questions about nutrition at her Ask-A-Doctor booth.
And of course you can visit up close and personal with hundreds of animals, hear their stories, and appreciate just how delicious animal-product-free food can be!
The Sanctuary is just 2 hours away from NYC. Bus transportation is available. Click here for directions. Sorry, no pooches allowed.
Proceeds from this event will go directly to the charitable work of Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary.
