Vegan Bus to Burning Man 2007: Photo Gallery

Posted by on 06 Oct 2013 | Tagged as: Our Travels

The Vegan Bus has been on hiatus for a while, but we will be making announcements about future plans for the bus soon!

Derek Goodwin recently posted his photo gallery from the 2007 maiden voyage of the bus on its trip from Northampton, Massachusetts to Black Rock City, Nevada. Inspired his 2006 experience at Burning Man, Derek saw the need for a vegan presence at the festival and began the Vegan Bus project.

the Vegan Bus jumps through a ring of fire!

WildFire is the East Coast’s premier spinning and fire arts training camp. The Vegan Bus is putting together a Vegan Circus to tour with, and so Wildfire seems like the perfect event to make an appearance at with the bus. We will be traveling from Northampton, MA to Ashford, CT and hope to pick up some wayward fire dancers on the way. If you are interested in traveling with us please contact us!

We will be leaving on Friday, August 20th and returning on Monday, August 23rd. To help fund the Vegan Bus Project we are asking for a suggested donation of $30 for the round trip, or $20 for one way. If there is interest we can swing through Hartford, CT or other areas that are slightly off of the route. We can also pick people up from the Hartford Airport. Once we know who is interested we will post a more specific schedule for the trip.

Go Down to the Hoe Down!

Farm Sanctuary Hoe Down 2009

Last year The Vegan Bus was all set to go to the Farm Sanctuary Hoe Down when our brake line broke, spilling brake fluid and making us feel sad. This year the bus has brand new brakes and brake lines, and are planning to make a spectacular stop at this year’s Hoe Down! What’s a Hoe Down? Farm Sanctuary puts it this way…

Join Farm Sanctuary for a memorable weekend at our New York Shelter during our annual Country Hoe Down! This popular event features presentations by well-known speakers in the movement providing current information on animal protection and vegan issues.

In addition to educational and inspiring lectures and presentations, guests will enjoy camping at the sanctuary with other animal-friendly folks, catered vegan meals, yoga classes, hayrides, a Saturday night barn dance, a bonfire, and (of course) guided tours of our shelter that is home to hundreds of rescued farm animals.

Registration for this event is $100 per person. Along with access to all lectures, tours and entertainment options, registration includes all meals (beginning with breakfast on Saturday and ending with lunch on Sunday).

This one-of-a-kind event is an outstanding opportunity to gain valuable knowledge, connect with like-minded people, and become a member of the Farm Sanctuary family. We hope to see you there!

We are offering a limited amount of rides with us for a donation of $40. We will be leaving from Northampton Massachusetts Friday in the early afternoon and returning Sunday evening. The ride will take about 7 hours each way. We will provide some snacks for the ride. We are willing to consider picking up people on the route if it does not cause us a significant delay (see map below for route). If you have any questions please contact us!

You need to register for the event through Farm Sanctuary, it is not included in the cost of riding on the bus. Registration deadline is July 24th! This is a camping event so be sure to read Farm Sanctuary’s Hoe down camping web page.

Round Trip $40

Posted by on 12 Jun 2009 | Tagged as: Events, Humane Education, Our Travels

4th of July Extraveganza with the Vegan Bus

The Vegan Bus will be heading to Philadelphia this Fourth of July for our first road trip of the summer. We are teaming up with two different Philadelphia groups, Public Eye: Artists for Animals and Vegan Drinks Philly, to put on two very different events. During the day we will be in Clark Park with Public Eye’s Kid’s Club to have a vegan barbeque along with kids activities that teach compassion. The second event will be for adults, as we meet up with Vegan Drinks at the New Harmony Vegan Restaurant

Kids Club Vegan Barbeque July 4th from 11:00am-3:00pm

Join the Vegan Bus and Public Eye: Artists for Animals for a down-home vegan BBQ with hula hoops, lawn games, musical instruments, and art projects. The Bus will park at Clark Park, a lovely setting in University City with trees and a playground. Please bring a vegan/vegetarian picnic lunch, blanket/lawn chairs, and drinks for your family. We will provide additional items (veggie dogs, burgers, etc.) for the BBQ! Friendly dogs are welcome at Clark Park. Public Eye requests an RSVP with the number and ages of your children.

Lightlife Vegetarian FoodsThanks to Lightlife for donating 96 vegan burgers to us for the event! Coincidentally, 96 is the number of animals one person can save each year by going vegan… Lightlife’s headquarters are in Turners Falls Massachusetts, only about 1/2 hour from the home of the Vegan Bus!

Photos of the Vegan Bus and Shokazoba in NYC

Posted by on 26 Oct 2008 | Tagged as: Our Travels

On Sunday Sept 28, 2008 the Vegan Bus took our local Afrobeat band Shokazoba to NYC for the 2008 Farm Sanctuary “Walk For Farm Animals”. Although the band only got to play one song due to rain, fun was had by all, as you can see from these photos…
