WHAT TO BRING

We encourage everyone to bring their reusable shopping bags and containers for your food and drink that you purchase. This helps make the festival even kinder to the planet, plus the bigger the container the more food you can get, so it's a win win. Also some of our vendors will only be handling cash sales, so if you plan to shop bring some cash. There is an ATM onsite too. On your way in you can pick up your festival program so you can be sure you don't miss a beet.

P.S. VegFest is even more fun with friends. So bring your whole squad and strike a pose at the Purdy Natural Photo Booth.

See you on November 12! We believe in a kinder world & we know that you do too!
