VEGFESTS


VegFests typically promote the vegan lifestyle with food, speakers, and merchandise.

If a VegFest doesn't exist in your area, start one! Step by step guide is available here from the Twin Cities VegFest hosted by Compassionate Action for Animals (redirects to their site).

The first VegFest was created by Toronto Vegetarian Association in 1985. Chester County (PA) has had an annual VegFest since 1991. Boston hosted its first major VegFest in 1996. Other cities caught the idea, and now VegFests, big and small, indoors and outdoors, proliferate. These events inspire people to try veganism or reaffirm their decision to be vegan.
