How do you give thanks for the fall harvest without cooking and eating animals? The Catskill Animal Sanctuary encourages people to reimagine “Turkey Day” as a celebration of these beautiful birds. You can join the turkeys and other rescued farmed animals at the Sanctuary on Saturday, October 20 for the third annual Gobble & Groove. This autumn feast features with sweet and savory treats by Cinnamon Snail, Yeah Dawg, Rockin’ Raw and Healthy Gourmet to Go, as you enjoy to live fiddle music from the Bad Cats and newgrass from Stranger at Home.

You can join in a special feeding of the turkeys’ (and pigs’) favorite treats, decorate a pumpkin for Halloween, shop a vegan marketplace, do yoga outdoors, learn new recipes and try free samples at food demos and score cool raffle prizes. Best-selling author Gene Stone (Eat for the Planet, The How Not to Die Cookbook, Mercy for Animals, Living the Farm Sanctuary Life, My Beef with Meat, Forks over Knives: The Plant-Based Way to Health, The Secrets of People Who Never Get Sick, The Engine 2 Diet) will be the special guest speaker.

Rain or shine, Gobble & Groove happens on Saturday, October 20 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission costs $20 for adults, $17 for members, $10 for children aged 5 to 12 and is free for children under 5. For reservations, visit http://bit.ly/GandG18.
