Testing out food from the 9th Annual Charotte VegFest

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (QC Life) - The Charlotte VegFest is returning this month!

After a two-year pause, the vegan celebration will be in full swing at the Ford Building at Camp North End on Sept. 17 from 12-4 p.m.

Ahead of the fun, we’re joined by Julia Simon, President of the Charlotte VegFest and Chef Joya, celebrity vegan chef.

There will be live cooking demos, activities for kids and panel discussions with nutrition experts.
