Event - Los Angeles Green Festival

Los Angeles Green Festival will take place on September 16 - 18 in Los Angeles Convention Center, 1201 S Figueroa St, Los Angeles, South Hall K. Hours are as follows, Friday: 12pm - 6pm; Saturday: 10am - 6pm; Sunday: 10am - 5pm. Sign language interpreters are available Saturday and Sunday.

Join the Green Festival Marketplace by exploring over 250 exhibitors, learning from over 50 inspirational speakers, indulging in some delicious vegan or vegetarian food and learning all you need to know to live a more sustainable lifestyle!

This year the primary goal has been to help attendees gain the tools they need to personally help mitigate climate change, which is why we have partnered with A.U.M Films/Cowspiracy for all cities in 2016. On Friday September 16th there will be a screening of Cowspiracy followed by a Q and A from Co-Director Kip Andersen. Donations for the screening will go back to helping the efforts of American Wild Horse Preservation and Rowdy Girl Sanctuary. Factory Farming Awareness Coalition will also be joining LA in a presentation as well as John Lewis from Bad Ass Vegan; Ed Begley Jr., veteran vegan of 22 years will speak, Spork Foods will show us how easy it is to make great vegan cuisine. Praised film Speciesism will make its debut on the Green Festivals circuit followed by a talk from Director Mark Devries. Vegan Health & Fitness Magazine and Holistic Holiday at Sea will be onsite and internationally acclaimed musician Moby will address the audience with a testament to the plant based lifestyle.
