At Kale-A-Rama, kale rules the day! The day-long festival will be a celebration of KALE with an emphasis on veganism, going green, and having fun! The “feel” of the festival will be somewhere between Burning Man, Woodstock, and your local vegan festival - in other words, anything goes, especially if it somehow relates to kale!
More than 30 kale-tastic vendors and exhibitors will be on hand, including Everlasting Life Cafe, Brad’s Raw Foods (kale chips!),the Vegetarian Society of DC, Green Vegan Networking, A Well-Fed World, The BootCamp Girl, Gina Mai Denn's Pottery, and more.
Kale-A-Rama 2013 attendees will be entertained by Bushmaster Blues featuring Vegan Gary Brown, Christina Van Norman and The Kale-Tastics, Chris Colvin on didgeridoo and Rakhel Israel on drums!
Naturopathic physician and restaurateur, Dr. Baruch Ben-Yehudah of Everlasting Life Cafe (Capitol Heights, MD) will speak on the benefits of vegan nutrition including...you guessed it...kale! Also speaking is Philippe Orlando, Greenbelter and fitness expert, who shot some of the factory farming footage used in the documentaries Vegucated, Earthlings and Meet Your Meat. Stephanie Dignan/The BootCamp Girl will give tips on vegan nutrition and exercise.
Attendees are encouraged to don kale leaves and green attire. Kale garlands will be hung around the Roosevelt Center, and worn proudly at the festival. At 2 pm, a competition for the 2013 Kale Royalty will commence, in which contestants will answer the question “How would you change the world if you were crowned Kale Queen [or King]?”
See you at Kale-A-Rama April 20th...until then, take kale!
