Veg'n out in Tijuana
Vegetarian Cuisine & Arts Festival aims to show the organic beauty of edible and non-edible products
This Saturday, November 24, ditch the post-Thanksgiving turkey leftovers at home in favor of some organic vegetarian food and music across the border at VC&AF, Vegetarian Cuisine & Arts Festival.
The event is put on by the folks at Art & Trees, a Tijuana outfit dedicated to promoting arts and culture through all-ages festivals.
As stated on the Facebook event page, and translated from its original Spanish, "We want to create a great event to raise our audience's awareness and cause a cultural impact around everything organic, whether edible or adapted to everyday objects.
"This event is aimed not only at vegans and vegetarians... We intend to engage people who are not used to paying attention to the organic sector in all areas, whether food, objects made from recycled materials and 100 percent organic.
"The main objective of Vegetarian Festival is to present and promote a new way of life - outside of the traditional - Be environmentally conscious and help the environment by improving the quality of life and reducing waste."
It's all happening at Margarita's Village (Avenida Revolución 967, Zona Centro, Tijuana) with some of the vendors to include:
Five and Ten
The Yellow Kite
La Flor de La Vida
Peace and Lau
Alexa Parra Creations
Tatiana Lechuga (aromatic products)
Expect to hear tunes from:

Lo Que Nunca Fue
Entry to the event is free and runs from 1-10pm.
