Recent research points to multiple health benefits of plant-based diets. For those who want inspiration for going meat-free, or just including more vegetables, fruit, and legumes in their meals, there’s VegFest. The annual celebration of all manner of plant-based products will feature vendor booths, food samples, and lectures on diet, health, and the environment, as well as a live performance by Americana singer/songwriter Annette Conlon. A Kids’ Room will offer arts and crafts, face painting, and food-oriented activities for the younger set. The festival will happen on August 3, 10 a.m.–5 p.m., at the Luther Burbank Center in Santa Rosa. Admission is $5. For more information, go to socovegfest.org.
