Do I have to be vegan to participate?
Not at all! We are a vegan event but there will be a variety of exhibitors. No one needs to personally subscribe to a vegan lifestyle or have such a message to attend. We just ask that anything you sell or hand out is in alignment with our message and that it is vegan. See our page with guidelines for exhibitors. We are also eager to help out and you can ask us any questions about this.
What are the directions for setup?
You can set up on Saturday, April 13th, noon - 4 pm, or on Sunday morning, April 14th, 8 am - 10 am.
The load-in entrance is easily accessible from the back of the Century Center parking lot (click here for a map of the building).
Several flatbed carts will be available.
After delivery, you must not remain parked right outside of the facility. You can use the parking lot for $5- or park in a nearby street. Downtown parking is free everywhere on Sundays. Click here for a walking map of the area (pdf).
At 4:00 PM on Sunday you should start taking down your exhibits.

I am a food vendor, can I cook at my table?

Do vendors need to provide a Certificate of Insurance for the event?
Michiana VegFest carries the insurance for the event.
We understand that VegFest is a vegan event, which we support, but our website shows that we also sell animal products. Can we still be a vendor at VegFest?
As long as you don’t promote animal products at VegFest itself, we welcome you as a vendor.
