Moscow on the Weekend: VeganFest at ArtPlay

This Saturday Artplay will host "VeganFest," a food fair celebrating vegetarian, vegan and raw food diets.

Visitors will be able to sample vegetarian and vegan dishes, and learn how to prepare them in masterclasses. The emphasis will be on making vegetarian and vegan cuisine accessible, using ingredients that can be found easily and recipes that can be prepared quickly.

The culinary element of the festival will be supported by screenings of educational films about vegetarianism as well as an informative lecture series by doctors and scientists about the benefits of these diets. For sporty types, there will also be an education session on how raw food diets can improve performance when training and competing.

A vegan market will open on site, where visitors can buy organic and ethical clothing as well as cosmetics and food products.

A program for children will also be available.

***Artplay Center of Art and Design. 10 Nizhnyaya Syromyatnicheskaya Ulitsa. Metro Kurskaya, Chkalovskaya. veganfest.ru. Sat., March 19 from noon to 8 p.m. Entry — 100 rubles ($1.30).***

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
