About

What is Valley Vegfest?

Valley Vegfest gathers vegan natural food and cruelty-free product providers, along with engaging speakers and educational exhibitors, for a fun community event.  It is an opportunity to enjoy food from a variety of vendors, learn about new products, and try free samples.  There is a kid’s room with activities for the young ones.  Valley Vegfest 2018 takes place at JFK Middle School on Saturday, April 7th, from 10 to 4, with talks scheduled throughout the day.

Whether you are a longtime vegetarian, vegan, or anyone wanting to learn about new nutritious and delicious foods, alternatives to animal products, and the many health and environmental benefits of a plant-based diet, we invite you to join in the festivities at Valley Vegfest!  Admission is free and everyone is welcome!  Donations are much appreciated.
