Shindig – A Festival of Vegan Living!

October 3, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm


We’re sorry to say that Shindig has been cancelled for 2015. The weather forecast is calling for a lot of rain so we’ve decided to cancel the event. Tickets are being refunded. Thanks for your interest and we’ll see you in 2016!

Buy ticketsThis year’s festival promises to be a great time for friends and family with lots of exhibitors. Chef Linda will conduct cooking demos and the kids will love the hayrides around the grounds. And best of all is spending time with the rescued farmed animals!



We’ve lined up three terrific speakers this year: 

  • Demosthenes Maratos, Communications Director at the Sustainability Institute at Molloy College
  • Rae Sikora, co-founder/co-director of Plant Peace Daily and co-founder of VegFund 
  • Kathy Stevens, Founder and President of Catskill Animal Sanctuary

We’re excited to welcome two great bands who will keep you dancing all day — The Brummy Brothers and Trio Mio!
