Asheville, NC – August 26, 2022 – On Sunday, October 2, 2022, we are back in Asheville, NC for Asheville Veganfest, an event to promote vegan-friendly businesses and organizations’ resources in the Asheville area and beyond. Asheville is the perfect city for a vegan festival. When you combine foliage season and October weather you create a perfect destination event. This event is produced by the group behind Vegfest Expos and Triangle Vegfest, a 501(c)3 nonprofit based out of Wake Forest, NC. This festival is sponsored by Superieur Electrolytes, and Asheville Vegan Society. The festival is presented by Piedmont Farm Animal Refuge out of Pittsboro, NC.
Festival-goers will have the opportunity to enjoy plant-based culinary delights, samples, and giveaways from vendors such as A Peace of Soul, Imagine Vegan Cafe, Vegan House Shack, and local newcomers, Eleos Vegan Eatery and Tahini Jar, while listening to live music, a DJ, and the children (and adults) play in our Family Fun Zone, with free face painting and caricatures by Silly Willy. Over 90 vendors will bring a variety of animal-friendly wellness and beauty products, apparel, health services, educational resources, and more. An up-to-date vendor live map can be found on the event Facebook page or our website, ashevilleveganfest.com.
In 2021, we brought veganfest back to Asheville and are excited to be back in Pack Square again for 2022. “Asheville is one of our favorite cities”, Event Producer, Helene Greenberg shares. “It wouldn’t be festival season without Asheville Veganfest.”
Asheville Veganfest will take place, rain or shine, from 11am – 6pm at Pack Square Park, right in the heart of Downtown Asheville, NC.
Admission is free, but we have a limited number of VIP Goody Bags for $25 each. Festival-goers, please BYOB (Bring your own bags or bottles). Composting is encouraged and recycling bins will be available for non-compostable items.
