Event Watch: Asheville VeganFest
Posted On Thursday, May 25, 2017
Asheville is one of the top vegan-friendly cities in the country, and our award winning restaurants are a testament to that fact! We're so proud of the compassionate and responsible chefs that create mouth watering dishes for our vegan friends, and every year we look forward to celebrating them at the Asheville VeganFest! Taking place this year over the weekend of June 10th - 11th, VeganFest is a celebration of the vegan lifestyle that integrates a strong educational component into the event. Read on for more information about this quickly approaching festival!
What to Expect
The Asheville VeganFest is hosted by Brother Wolf Animal Rescue - the largest no-kill animal rescue organization in all of North Carolina. Saturday, June 10th, will be a day of education as speakers from around the country discuss the latest vegan issues. With topics ranging from Veganism and Spirituality to Human and Nonhuman Rights, this will be a day rich in information.
Sunday, June 11th will be a food-focused day, with dozens of vegan food and beer vendors lining the plaza at Pack Square Park. Live music provided by the Asheville Buskers Collective will set the mood of the day. Expect to see Asheville favorites like Gypsy Queen Cuisine, French Broad Chocolates, Buchi, Laughing Seed Cafe and more.
