  1. Any information on how to start a VegFest? I’m moving to Arizona from the DC/Maryland area so not only do I get to enjoy the DC Vegfest, but I’ve gotten a double dose with the Baltimore, MD one as well. So I’m going from 2 vegfests to ZERO ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    My friend said “hey why don’t you start a VegFest out there?” Which is not a bad idea, so I’m going to look into it. Was going to contact Compassion over Killing and FARM and see if they can help.

    1. My suggestion would be to contact COK, as you mentioned. If you love them, they’ll likely love you back and give you some good information. I worked for the NYC Veg Food Fest. It takes time and work to put any event together, like securing permits and contacting vendors, but veg fests are such an awesome experience; well worth the effort to spread the word. When you get to Arizona, go on MeetUp and try to gauge the scene, like in Phoenix ( Also consider submitting a grant proposal to Veg Fund. Best of luck! Hope I get to visit your festival one day!

  9. I’ve been to the Austin Vegfest for a few years and last year I worked a booth with a local ND. The booth fee was very high for an event, especially for just a 1 day. That was last year and now you’ve raised the price even higher! I get that you are offering this free to the public this way but how about helping the smaller, local businesses out as well? You get a lot of corporate companies who have big budgets at these events, but not everyone who supports your ideas have the same funding. Perhaps offer a small, local business discount? Even half price would still be high, but much easier to cover and still pay my staff. Can someone please respond? I appreciate it. Thank you.

    1. Shannon, I am not associated with any of the VegFest; I just keep a list of events available. If you have questions or grievances, you should contact the event host.
