Texas VegFest, Austin’s first plant-based festival, featuring great food, craft beer, speakers, cooking demos, youth activities, sampling, and live music, celebrates it’s FIFTH year! The celebration is set for Saturday April 2nd, 2016 between 11 AM and 6 PM at the beautiful Fiesta Gardens, 2101 Jesse E. Segovia St. Conveniently located in central Austin, Fiesta Gardens is accessible by bicycle and public transportation. Since the inaugural festival in 2012, Texas VegFest has attracted thousands of people interested in learning about and celebrating plant-based diets, cruelty-free lifestyles, as well as those just looking to grab a bite to eat while grooving to some great music!
Texas VegFest is a great family event, featuring children’s yoga, a youth cooking demo, a seed planting activity, story time, coloring, and animal welfare education. Or just relax by Lady Bird Lake while the kids romp in the grass. When you’re hungry, local food vendors will be hawking falafel, burgers, tacos, funnel cake, curry, ice cream, cupcakes, and more. And don’t forget to check out our more than 100 sponsors and vendors!
Our team is currently accepting speakers, volunteers, sponsors, vendors, and nonprofit organizations to help make our 5th year celebrate as awesome as possible!
