Dvořákova Praha – September 7-22

Every world cuisine has its own vegetarian meals (smažák stands for the Czech Republic). Taste them all at Vegefest with a beautiful view of Prague from Vyšehrad. There is also a rich accompanying program.

Hog-Killing Feast – September 27
I hope visitors of Vegefest won’t attack zabijačka lovers and vice versa. White pudding, brawn, blood soup, … some of us are starting to salivate already, but I don‘t know what to expect of this recently announced butcher’s show. We’ll see…

Big Fall Critical Mass Bike Ride – September 14

Anyone can run, but skating requires better training. If you trust yourself enough to be able to turn or brake (unlike me), you can join this in-line skating race at Rohanské nábřeží in Prague.
