The Tofurky Company invites you to join in the 2014 Buffalo Tofurky Trot, August 3rd 2014 in Buffalo, NY. Tofurky Trots are designed to support both the health and vitality of local communities and raise money for local groups supporting plant based diets. The race is 5k (3.1 miles) and is a run, trot, or walk open to all levels of physical fitness. It’s a great day to enjoy the company of fellow plant eaters and highlight the benefits of plant based diets.

The Tofurky Trot will be the starting event to Buffalo's first annual WNY VegFest. The purpose of the event is to bring people from all different walks of life into a family friendly atmosphere that promotes a vegan lifestyle. We hope to raise vegan awareness within our community, help people make lifestyle transitions, and help vegan and vegetarian people connect. Restaurants, holistic therapists, vegan food companies, and many more vendors will be on site. We will also have live music, multiple speakers, and a children's area.
