About Us

Welcome to michiana vegfest

Our goal is to provide the communities of northern Indiana and southwestern Michigan with an opportunity to explore many exciting flavors and options in the rapidly expanding world of plant-based eating.  We bring together new vegan products and services along with dynamic speakers to promote a plant-powered lifestyle for health, compassion, and environmental conservation.  We encourage everyone to make healthy food choices and to support our local vegan-friendly businesses and organizations.

Michiana VegFest, Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization that is entirely run by volunteers. Donations and any proceeds from our yearly event are used to support efforts for the next VegFest.

We would like to thank our generous sponsors for elevating our mission:
