Welcome to SWFL Veg Fest '19!
Southwest Florida's largest yearly celebration of sustainable, healthy, compassionate vegan lifestyles!
Become a vendor and showcase your vegan products and/or services to thousands of people from all over SWFL and beyond!
In 2017, the first SWFL Veg Fest was held. Between 8-10,000 committed and passionate enthusiasts of plant-based eating, healthy and compassionate lifestyles, environmentalists, and many others who wanted to learn more about how to protect their health, the planet, and its inhabitants attended. In 2018, Veg Fest drew almost twicethat number – between 16-20,000 from across SWFL and beyond!
We intend to make SWFL Veg Fest ’19 a destination event, doubling our attendance once again!
The event will be promoted in the most effective online and local media channels we know of to ensure Veg Fest ’19 is the largest gathering to-date! As a vendor, we hope you will help by promoting this event to everyone in your tribe, and in all the media channels available to you.
Consider this your personal invitation to be a vendor at SWFL Veg Fest ’19 and help make it the largest vegan festival around!
SWFL Veg Fest ’19 will host vegan food trucks and vendors, healthy living and eco-friendly exhibitors and vendors, non-profits, fun and games for kids, cooking demonstrations, live music and entertainment, speakers who will share the latest information on living healthy, compassionate and sustainable lifestyles, and so much more!
Showcase your vegan business, products and/or services to thousands of people who follow, or are interested in learning more about, a sustainable, compassionate, plant-based lifestyle. Your business doesn’t have to be exclusively vegan, but what you bring to the Fest must be!
