Chicago VeganMania

Come visit our booth at Chicago VeganMania! We want to meet more and more of our supporters!

https://newleafalliance.org/

“Chicago VeganMania is a celebration of the dynamic vegan community in Chicago. We bring together the vegan restaurants and food companies, leaders and entrepreneurs, doctors and chefs, businesses and organizations, singers and dancers, and we put them in one big place to show them all off to the world.

You certainly don't have to be vegan to attend or enjoy Chicago VeganMania. We just want you to have fun! Chicago VeganMania is a big friendly party, an event where you can eat wonderful food, enjoy great music and lively entertainment, and have an opportunity to discover unique vegan products and learn the secrets of vegan chefs. You can also sit in on one of our Speaker or Panel presentations for additional information on a variety of topics!

Our first nine celebrations exceeded everyone's expectations, and this fall we'll be back, bigger than ever. So stop by and prepare yourself for an exciting and wonderful day.”

Carl's 2nd Birthday!
Oct

1:00 PM13:00

Carl's 2nd Birthday!

What: Carl’s Second Birthday! 🐮❤️🎂

When: October 7th from 1-4pm

Where: IFS, of course!

Why: Help us celebrate the triumph of one tiny calf and the compassion that saved his life! Carl the cow was rescued from a veal auction (and certain death) just a few days before our very first fall fundraiser. His fate was uncertain, he was so tiny and his health was so poor-- we did not know if we would ever celebrate his first birthday. Carl defied all odds and has grown to be an incredibly healthy and loving cow— and now we get to celebrate his 2nd birthday!!!

Waukee Arts Festival
Jul

10:00 AM10:00

Waukee Arts Festival

The Waukee Area Arts Council and Stivers Ford Lincoln are pleased to present the Waukee Arts Festival on Friday, July 13th and Saturday, July 14th in Centennial Park. 

- Free Friday night concert by The Nadas
- Live music all day Saturday
- 90+ regional artists and exhibitors
- Student Artist exhibit, sponsored by Waukee Rotary Club
- Craft beer from Barn Town Brewing
- Unique beer garden by Rolling Taps Beer Coe
- Food truck vendors Friday and Saturday
- Kids entertainment and activities Saturday

Admission is free to the public.

The festival will open with a free Friday night concert featuring The Nadas, from 7pm to 9pm.

"The Nadas are a band from Iowa. Yes, they have been around long enough that if they were a car you would keep them covered in your garage except for sunny weekend cruising. But that isn't what is important about their story. What is important is that they make music that makes you feel things. Happy, sad, nostalgic, optimistic, energized, curious, inspired, and confused. The important part is that it makes you want to listen, and sometimes dance. 2018 will mark the 25th year of The Nadas. In January, they will be releasing their 11th studio record entitled "One Louder". At a stage where most bands would be resting on their laurels and letting others do the heavy lifting, The Nadas are out there swinging for the fences, driving the van and carrying their own instruments."

Saturday artist exhibitions will be open from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
