Veg fans–your event is here! The 8th annual Pittsburgh VegFest hits Allegheny Commons East Northside on August 27th, 11am-5pm! The outdoor fest has the best veg food in Pittsburgh. Admission is free!

VegFest has been growing in popularity throughout the years, becoming one of the biggest food festivals of the year. It was voted best food festival two years in a row. And it’s more than just about the food. You’ll have live music, shopping, informative speakers, cooking and live demonstrations!

The day is filled with small business merch and wellness vendors, featuring Valkyrie Doughnuts, Snackever, Plant Love Nutrition and so many more! Some of the shopping options include Natural Awakenings, Songbird Artistry, The Dog Stop, Plants Only, Closet Rehab, Bare Elements. 

Con Alma is 100% vegan! At the fest you can try their beignets, loaded nachos, tacos, and more!

Everest Eats is a family owned meal delivery catering company. They have traditional favs and recreate them entirely with plants. Try some pizza, sandwiches, fried “chicken”, and desserts. There’s merch too! 

Envision Positive has hand-made crafts, all about vegan society! From wall hangings to cutting boards to buttons to decals!

Soapy Solutions is family-owned plant-based skin care in Pittsburgh. Their all-natural ingredients include plant-based bar soap, body wash, facial soaps, and more. They’ll be on sale at VegFest! 

VegFest will be selling Liquid Death for the event. As they say, “don’t be scared. It’s just water.” The sparkling, still, flavored cans will help to fundraise for Justice for Animals. Liquid Death donates 10% of profits from every can sold which is donated to charities that help kill plastic pollution. Very cool!  

Make sure to watch some live performances by Kahone Concept, The GhostWrite, Hearken, Blind Adam & Jessica Avery, Change of Heart, Cisco Kid, Atlantic Wasteland, and School of Rock–Wexford!
