Parade starts in Greenwich Village where Little West 12th Street, Gansevoort Street, Greenwich Street & 9th Avenue converge in a public gathering
place. (Look for cavorting carrots & peapods among people holding signs and banners.) It concludes with a rousing rally/expo in the eastern end of
Washington Square Park.
“The parade drew advocates from United Poultry Concerns ‘Dedicated to the Compassionate and Respectful Treatment of Domestic
fowl.’” – “Proud Vegetarians, in Costume, Take to the Streets.” The New York Times
“I like going through Greenwich Village for its legacy with progressive ideas, and vegetarianism is a progressive idea.” – Pamela Rice,
Veggie Pride Parade Organizer and Founder of the VivaVegie Society, author of 101 Reasons Why I’m a Vegetarian, quoted in AM New York
