Vegan Thanksgiving at Uplands PEAK Sanctuary

The Uplands PEAK Sanctuary is hosting their fourth annual PEAKsgiving, a vegan-style traditional Thanksgiving experience, from 12:30 to 4 p.m. on November 4 at the Sanctuary, in Salem, Indiana. Along with a vegan dinner, there’ll be a silent auction, raffle, live music, informational booths and a pumpkin-picking experience.

This year, PEAKsgiving will have their first guest speaker, Kristin Lajeunesse, author of Will Travel for Vegan Food: A Young Woman’s Solo Van-Dwelling Mission to Break Free, Find Food, & Make Love; and founder and writer of the award-winning website Will Travel For Vegan Food.

The meal will include a healthy vegan feast including appetizers, salad and main course, and desserts by Sea Salt and Cinnamon. In addition, the Heine Brothers will be serving up beverages.

Located on 20 acres of refuge, Uplands PEAK Sanctuary rescues and rehabilitates abused and neglected farm animals, and educates the public about the health benefits of a vegan lifestyle.

Uplands PEAK is a 501(c)(3) organization and this is their biggest fundraiser of the year—all money raised goes directly to their operating costs.

Admission cost: $75 for general tickets (limited to 60 tickets), $100 for tickets including the Co-Founder Tour (limited to 10 tickets), and $150 for the PEAK Pack for a table with Lajeunesse and a signed book copy (limited to 10 tickets). Event is limited to 100 attendees. Location: 4205 W. Grandview Rd. For more information and ticket sales, call 812-896-2114 or visit
