Welcome to Michiana VegFest!
The health and safety of VegFest participants are a top priority for our organization. Because Covid-19 continues to spread and there is no clear indication when its progression can be checked, Michiana VegFest’s Board of Directors unanimously decided to reschedule our event to October 17, 2021. We know such a decision will come as a disappointment to all, as it is to us, but these extraordinary circumstances have left us no other choice. We look forward to welcoming everyone next year! In the meantime, we will organize online streaming events to promote our local sponsors, speakers, chefs, and exhibitors. Please stay tuned for announcements and take good care of yourselves.
Our third annual VegFest will take place in the vast and beautiful Century Center, in South Bend, Indiana, overlooking the river.

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. Click here to read more about Michiana VegFest.
In 2019 we enjoyed delicious food from local restaurants and businesses. We also screened three films at Notre Dame on the three Sundays before VegFest. We heard dynamic speakers on health, ethical and environmental topics. We were inspired to cook plant-based foods by attending chef cooking demonstrations. Visitors brought their children to enjoy activities at the Kids' Corner. Finally, at 4 pm we enjoyed fabulous music with a special free performance by The Bergamot Duo!
