Where to See 46 Million Turkeys
We’re so excited to be part of the New England VegFest again this year! The New England VegFest is a free festival that brings the local community together to celebrate vegetarianism: an animal-friendly, environmentally sustainable, and healthy lifestyle.
From April through November, we’ll have a table stocked with art supplies at the Portland Maine First Friday Art Walks. Everyone is invited to stop by our table to draw a turkey portrait for the collection!
