The Richmond Vegetarian Festival's mission is to highlight a vegetarian diet along with the resources that exist in our community that make vegetarianism a positive and easy choice. We strive to make the festival fun and inclusive of all the diverse reasons in which people choose a vegetarian diet, whether it is to reduce animal suffering, improve human health, tread more gently on our environment, comply with religious beliefs, or fulfill some other motivation. Opposing exploitation and oppression is a motivator for some people to choose a vegetarian diet, therefore part of our mission is to encourage this opposition through outreach to worthwhile causes in our community.
