GREENVILLE, S.C., August 10, 2021/vWire/ On Sunday, August 15, 2021, the community will gather for a day of fun, food, and festivities to celebrate a cruelty-free lifestyle, a cleaner environment, and a healthier planet. The goal of the event is to educate the public about the benefits of adopting plant-based choices and to promote vegan-friendly businesses and organizations’ resources in the Greenville area and beyond. This event is produced by the group behind Vegfest Expos and Triangle Vegfest, a 501(c)3 nonprofit based out of Wake Forest, NC. 

Festival-goers will have the opportunity to enjoy plant-based culinary delights, samples, and giveaways from vendors such as Superieur Electrolytes, Latin Flavorz Food, We Got the Beets Food Truck, and Jenauri’s Vegan Bakery while listening to live music and the children play in our Family Fun Zone. Over 45 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, greenvillefunfest.com.

This is the first vegan festival in Greenville, SC. “We are super excited to bring Greenville FunFest to the Greenville community”, Event Producer, Helene Greenberg shares. “The event was supposed to take place in 2020, so we are thankful to be able to bring the community together in 2021.” 

Saffron Sponsor, Wild Earth will be in attendance with giveaways and treats for everyone’s fur kids. “The treats are so good that humans love them too”, says Mike May, a member of the marketing team for Wild Earth. Our animal friends need to stay home for the event unless they are a service animal, but you can definitely pick up delicious treats to give to them when you get home from the festival. 

Greenville FunFest will take place, rain or shine, from 11am – 5pm. The event is outdoors, but covered at West End Events at Fluor Field, 935 S. Main Street, Greenville, SC 29601.
