Veggie Fest

Saturday, August 10, 2019

Last year, Assemblymember Ash Kalra successfully co-hosted the first ever 2018 San José Veggie Fest. Over 2,000 participants from around the Bay Area attended the festival to learn about environmental sustainability and healthy eating. This year Veggie Fest is back and will be hosted at Martial Cottle Park, on Saturday, August 10, 2019, from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm.

Veggie Fest is a fresh spin on the festival experience where community members can enjoy live multicultural performances, shop, play games, meet new people, learn more about state and local resources, and eat amazing vegan food, all while having fun in the sun at one of Santa Clara County’s newest park! Please join the Assemblymember on August 10th!

Assemblymember Kalra will be hosting the annual Assembly District 27 Beautify Our Local School event where he chooses an elementary school in his district to help with beautification projects that benefit the students. This year, he will be serving Lowell Elementary School. On Saturday, June 1st, 2019 his office will be joined by community members and students to help bring life and color to our downtown school.  Our plan is to repaint the playground blacktop and change Lowell’s colorless play yard to a bright and inviting space for kids to play and learn. In addition to adding color to the asphalt, we will be inviting a local artist to paint a mural on campus to inspire the children.
