New to the expo this year is the vegan fashion show, which will be notably absent of leather and other animal products. Lajeunesse thinks it will be a fun event for both people who are into animal rights and those who just have a general interest in fashion. Also debuting at the expo is "Forks and Knives," which examines the claim that many degenerative diseases can be controlled, or even reversed, by switching to vegetarian and vegan lifestyles. The movie has not been released nationally yet, and Lajeunesse said the expo is very excited to host the pre-sceening. A $10 advance donation is required as seating is limited.
Admission to the expo, meanwhile, is free, although a $5 donation is suggested. Sign language interpreters will be on hand.
