THANK YOU!

The 2nd Annual SWFL Veg Fest happened on Jan 28, 2018

Whew, what a day we had!! We’d like to send out a big THANK YOU to our 2018 sponsors, vendors, and volunteers who made this event possible. Photos will be posted soon, but you can find some on our Facebook page right now.

It’s become obvious that the movement is growing in SWFL! This year, we’re adding tons of smaller events throughout the year to bring our community together and share our enthusiasm for plant-based food, and the health and well-being of ourselves, our animal friends, and our planet. The more we “show up” and show local businesses that we’re here, the more likely they are to provide the products and services we want. We might even encourage some new businesses to sprout!

Check out our ongoing events HERE, or at the Ongoing Events tab above….or stay up-to-the-minute informed on our Facebook page HERE.

MISSION STATEMENT

SWFL Veg Fest showcases the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle for our health, compassion for animals and protecting our planet.

WELCOMING VEGANS, VEGETARIANS, OMNIVORES, & ANYONE VEG-CURIOUS!

Come see how easy it is to find healthy plant-based foods in Southwest Florida. Find local sources of eco-friendly and cruelty-free products. Learn about the science behind the benefits of a plant-based diet. Featuring expert speakers, cooking demos, vendors, and animal rescues – with entertainment and activities for the whole family!

SPEAKERS

The key purpose of the SWFL Veg Fest is EDUCATION, to help promote the message of the benefits of vegan and plant-based lifestyles. We bring in experts like doctors, researchers, and activists to discuss timely topics such as health, diet, animal welfare, and the environment. 

Stay tuned for our 2019 speaker list!

VOLUNTEER

Join the fun! SWFL Veg Fest 2019 is seeking volunteers for all aspects of the fest, including set up and break down for the event, staffing the Veg Fest tables and welcome stations, and assisting speakers and food vendors. We also need pre-fest help with planning, organizing, and promoting. Each year we’ve had an amazing volunteer team, and we expect to see many smiling faces back next year – but we think there’s no such thing as too many volunteers!

SPONSORS

The SWFL Veg Fest would not be possible without the awesome support we receive both from the community and our sponsors.
