Carpool info: We can fit up to 4 people in this carpool, and each person will contribute to gas a tolls, which will be between $20-30 each, depending on how many people come. The carpool needs to leave between the hours of 11am and 5pm on Saturday, April 14th and will return to Syracuse either late evening on Sunday the 15th or early morning on the 16th. All Syracuse carpoolers will enjoy free housing overnight at the GoGo Collective, an old farm house turned into a housing collective and farm. Carpool times are entirely dependent on who is joining the carpool and what fits everyone’s schedule the best. Email Amber at alcoon @ if you are interested in coming to Vegfest with any restrictions on carpool departure times.
About the vegfest: The VegFest itself is free, but you are encouraged to bring money so we can enjoy meals at the many local vegan restaurants there, as well as make purchases at the Vegfest( if the vendors don’t sell things, they will be less likely to come to the next vegfest) Find out more about the amazing speakers and presentations you will find at Vegfest: and RSVP on Facebook here:
