What is Michiana VegFest?

VegFests are community festivals that celebrate plant-based, healthy, ethical and sustainable living. Our VegFest welcomes everyone, from visitors to local businesses, and promotes plant-based resources that can be found right here in Michiana.

Before its inaugural event on March 25, 2018, Michiana VegFest began its journey several years ago. A community event organized in March 2016 by the Beacon Health System and titled "Taste of Health," with the support of major sponsors, attracted many participants. The group Michiana Vegan Living has coordinated successful events for the last two years; another group, VegMichiana, has also been organizing popular events for years. Michiana VegFest is the culmination of a long journey to meet our community's interests and to bring further education on the benefits of a plant-based diet and lifestyle.

Come, and enjoy delicious food from local restaurants and businesses. Hear dynamic speakers on health, ethical and environmental topics. Get inspired to cook plant-based foods by attending our chef cooking demonstrations. Bring your children to enjoy activities at the Kids' Corner.
