A big Texas THANK YOU to everyone who made our 7th annual Texas VegFest a success!
The unexpected, unusual 40 degree weather didn’t stop over 5,600 people from attending!
Not only did we beat out attendance goal of 5000, we also had over 100 participants, and diverted 80% of our trash from the landfill by teaming up with TDS Green Event Services!
There was much fun to be had; great food to eat, educational lectures to listen to while warming up, cooking demos that delighted the senses and belly, we sold out of our 2018 festival shirts that were designed by Josh at Herbivore Clothing Co., and of course our sponsors, vendors, and nonprofits were in full effect dishing out all of the plant-based educational pamphlets, savory and sweet food dishes, and life-style goods!
We are overwhelmed with gratitude by the support from each any everyone of YOU! Texas VegFest is just an idea with out all of the wonderful people that make it happen, and we are only able to reach our mission because of our supporters. Keep your calendars open for the first weekend in April 2019, for the 8th annual Texas VegFest! We’ll announce our official 2019 date, and begin taking sign ups for all participants, September 2018. Sponsors, vendors, and nonprofits be sure to keep posted so you can get on the reoccurring vendor list and get a 2019 sign up discount!
