Free Veg History Walking Tour Saturday

Event Date:

August 6, 2022

Event Time:

4:00 pm

Event Location:

American Vegan Center

As part of the American Vegan Center’s Grand Opening celebration we’re offering this 76-minute walking tour through Old City focusing on its vegetarian and vegan history, led by Vance Lehmkuhl. Attendees will see historic spots (most, unfortunately, lacking historical markers) tied to vegetarian pioneers such as Benjamin Lay, Ben Franklin, the Grimke sisters, Sylvester Graham, Bronson Alcott, Caroline Earle White, Peace Pilgrim, and Alfoncie Austin. Vegetarian advocacy officially launched in the U.S. in 1817 just one block from the American Vegan Center, and the story of that group along with others illustrates Philadelphia’s groundbreaking role in American veg history.

The tour departs from the steps of the American Vegan Center at 17 N. 2nd Street at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 6th.

There are twelve spots for this free tour. Please register in advance. Thanks!
