Hampton Roads VegFest 2017 United States
October 8, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC-5Free
We hope you’ll join us at the second annual Hampton Roads Veg Fest, presented by Smithfield Pig Save — Celebrating plant-based fare and cruelty-free living and inspiring the community of Southeastern Virginia to make kinder, greener and healthier choices.
*Help make our festival successful! DONATE TODAY!*
Hampton Roads, Virginia, is a gem when it comes to vegan eating. From the dozens of restaurants in Norfolk’s Ghent dishing up vegan pizza, froyo, and burritos to the organic eateries at the beach and vegan caterers and baked goods only a phone call away, there is much to celebrate. That’s why, in late 2015, a small group of folks scattered throughout the area joined together to pursue a common goal: putting on the biggest celebration of plant-based fare in the region.
Spearheaded by Smithfield Pig Save, a local non-profit organisation promoting compassion for pigs and other animals used for their flesh, the inaugural 2016 VegFest was a hit. Thousands converged on Festival Center at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront to dine on delicious food, shop local goods, meet movers and shakers from the animal advocacy movement, rock out to local musicians, and learn about vegan eating. Check out some of our highlights from 2016 right here!
The second annual VegFest promises to be even bigger and better, with dozens of vendors, mouth-watering food, music, a kids’ zone, contests, and so much more. Whether you are vegetarian, vegan, veg-curious, or just love amazing food, great music, and supporting the ever-growing Hampton Roads community… we cannot wait to see you at this event!
