Vegetarians of Washington is a large non-profit vegetarian society based in Seattle, WA. We encourage people to discover the advantages and experience the pleasures of vegetarian food. We welcome everyone, whether you're an experienced vegetarian, a beginner or just curious. You don't have to be a vegetarian to join our organization, or to follow our blog! We run the largest vegetarian food festival in the country, Seattle's Vegfest, held in the Seattle Center in March each year. We also host monthly dining events and give free nutrition and cooking classes. We've written four nationally published books, including our latest book "Say No to Meat" which gives the information and real-world advice that new vegetarians need the most, in an easy question-and-answer style. Our other books are the fact-filled "The Vegetarian Solution", a wide range of delicious recipes in "The Veg-Feasting Cookbook", and our guidebook to vegetarian and veg-friendly restaurants in Washington and Oregon, "Vegetarian Pacific Northwest". All our books are available in local bookstores, and via our website or Amazon.com.
