Short SummaryAcorns A Go-Go Groovy Vegan Fest has one simple goal: to produce & choreograph the very best vegan festival the Universe has ever seen!! This means having a fabulous time while raising awareness about animal rights and animal protection.
In the few days we have left, help us raise $540 dollars for a total of $750. This sum will cover animal rights activist, Honey LaBronx "The Vegan Drag Queen's" expenses from NY to MD (and compensate her for her very valuable time!). If we accomplish this $750 goal, Honey will be our Acorns A Go-Go Mistress of Ceremonies (MC)!! Honey LaBronx is sure to be the most fabulous vegan drag queen MC ever!! (We had hoped to raise enough to cover 2 more bands but with the remaining time, we want to focus only on Honey.)
With your pledge,
we'll put veganism on the map in the most outrageous, campy way –
and you'll have the thrill of being part of vegan herstory-making!! Underneath the glam & "camp", we'll have outta sight vegan food, groovy live music, cool kids' activities and lots of exhibitors raising awareness about animal rights (scroll down to see the list of festivities). Honey will be the perfect touch to make the message...palatable!!
Take a look at her current accomplishments:
The star of her own vegan cooking show on YouTube: www.YouTube.com/HoneyLaBronx, Honey's also performed in NYC, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Chicago, and most recently in the Icelandic Drag Competition. Honey uses her exposure as a drag performer to spread the vegan message to new audiences.
Now that you've
gotten to know the-one-and-only, incomparable Vegan Drag Queen, you
can understand why we are determined to have her at Acorns A Go-Go
Groovy Vegan Fest. No vegan festival could possibly be complete
And if Honey comes to town, we'll keep her hoppin'. She'll MC the entire festival (from 11:00 am - 6:00 pm).
See what we've cooked up for Honey:
Vegan Drum Circle (9:30 am to kick-off fest! Honey will be glamorizing herself, preparing for her stunning entrance!!)
Music - Bushmaster featuring Gary Brown (a reincarnation of Jimi Hendrix, really!!), Chris Colvin's Groovy Earth Music, multi-instrumentalist, Saleem Waters, and the jammin', long-awaited reunion of The Bad Weather Boyz!
Renowned acorn expert will demonstrate how to turn acorns into flour, then acorn flour into delicious vegan bread & cookies
Yummy Vegan Food Vendors (raw, cooked, smoothies, treats, etc.)
- Exciting Vegan Vendors (including handmade glass & hemp jewelry, homemade kombucha, vegan clothing and more!)
- Karen Davis of United Poultry Concerns will speak
Hula Hoop Competition for youngsters and the young-at-heart (presented by Lunar Leopard Hoops)
- Fun activities hosted by Open the Cages Alliance (to be announced!)
Vegan Go-Go Costume and Dance Contest
- Face-painter, Maia Thandeka, will create magical scenes on festival faces
- Animal Rights Youth Booth (and other activities for kids!)
and much more!!!!
What We Need & What You Get
We are setting our new goal at $750 - this is just enough to bring Honey to Acorns A Go-Go. We had set our sights higher hoping to pay for additional musical entertainment but we are now focusing only on having "The Vegan Drag Queen" at Acorns A Go-Go! She'll be such a hit!!
With Honey, we'll start an extraordinary trend in vegan awareness: Vegan Drag & High Camp!!! And, we'll show the world that vegans just want to have fun (while saving the animals, the planet, starving people, our families, frenemies, colleagues, strangers and ourselves - think that about covers it?!)!!!
The sky's the limit!! You can be sure that your return on your vegan awareness-raising investment will be a substantial, untold sum!! Honey is likely to get tons of media, too – growing your vegan investment exponentially!!
