If the very idea of Oktoberfest conjures up nothing but visions of Bratwurst and Wiener Schnitzel, then the idea of doing a vegan Volksfest might seem perplexing.
Of course in Toronto, there are some entrepreneuring vegans up to the task.
Taking place this weekend at Nest nightclub on College Street, Vegan Oktoberfest promises an evening of meatless eating, beer drinking, and entertainment including a polka band, music by DJ Gudrun, raffle prizes and more.
Expect to see Dolled up Desserts there serving up soft pretzels, and, Doug McNish dishing out mustard and ‘kraut-topped sausages made of navy beans, millet and a secret spice blend. Cheeze sauce will be optional.
The full list of vendors includes:
- Doug McNish
- The Pop Stand
- Sweet Teeth
- Malty and Hoppy Delicacy
- Penny Candy Jam
- The Way of Shea
- Do Terra Essential Oils
- Dolled up Desserts
- Yes Peas
