Gainesville Veg Fest 2017 United States
April 8, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC-5Free
Gainesville VegFest is a celebration of a healthy, sustainable and compassionate way of life. Our hope is for people of all ages to have fun and learn about the many ways to improve health, lessen our impact on the environment and reduce animal suffering. This free, family-friendly event will include speakers, veg vendors, exhibitors, educational booths, music, children’s activities and more.
Here’s an excellent opportunity for local vendors to showcase their products, services, merchandise and vegan food to hundreds of vegans, vegetarians, conscientious consumers, fitness lovers and people interested in living a compassionate and sustainable lifestyle.
VegFests have grown to great heights in host cities such as Orlando, Jacksonville, Tallahassee, Tampa and Cocoa. Our goal is to get Gainesville on the vegfest map of Florida!
