The Berkeley Heights Environmental Commission (BHEC) and Sustainable Berkeley Heights are co-sponsoring Berkeley Heights Vegan Fest 2019, which runs from Friday, Sept. 20 - Sunday, Sept. 22.  All events are free, open to the general public, and located in Berkeley Heights, NJ.

Close out summer's official last weekend by participating in the fabulous Vegan Cook-Off on this third and final day of Vegan Fest at 1:00 p.m. in Lower Columbia Park (located in Berkeley Heights, behind Columbia Middle School)!  If you have a great vegan appetizer, main course, or dessert that you'd like to enter, now is your chance to show off your culinary skills to your neighbors, friends, and all others who attend!  Join us on this third and final day of Vegan Fest.  

Veganism includes a diet in which no animals or animal products (including eggs and dairy products) are used. This is an opportunity for everyone - vegans and non-vegans alike - to showcase their skills at creating vegan dishes that can taste delicious.
