VegFest Returns This June!
The excitement is growing for this year's VegFest! The event will showcase some of the best vegan food Michigan has to offer. From the chick'n and waffle breakfast sandwich to a quinoa power bowl, everyone is sure to find something they will love. In addition to great food, we will offer fresh fruit smoothies, raw juices, kombucha, and other great drinks. No VegFest would be complete without the most amazing desserts and this year will be no exception. We will also have six of the best plant-based food trucks in Michigan. VegFest will host more than 50 food vendors in all, including your old favorites and many new ones. In addition to all of this great food, we will offer sustainable shopping, natural personal care, free literature, live music, and more!
