August 26, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC-5Free
The 2017 Columbus VegFest is a day of education and networking with like-minded people. The Columbus VegFest is a nonprofit organisation dedicated to the promotion of the health, environmental, and ethical benefits of a whole food plant-based lifestyle. Our event includes healthy living, animal- and Eco-friendly exhibitors, renowned chefs and speakers from around the country, presentations, cooking demonstrations, food trucks, area restaurants, non-profit organisations, author signings, kid’s activities and more.
In 2016, we held the first VegFest in Central Ohio and were blessed with more than 1,000 attendees. In January 2017, we filed our articles of incorporation to become a nonprofit 501c3 educational organisation. We invite you to join us in helping Columbus become more veg-friendly.
Join us to enhance your knowledge of how conscious living a plant-based lifestyle can transform your life! Our event will feature speakers on healthy living, environmentalism, nutrition, animal activism, mindful living and more!
