20 Awesome Vegan Things To Do in Los Angeles This March

Festivals, pop-ups, recurring events, and our very own VegOut Awards Party—LA’s vegan extravaganza continues in March. Say hello to this month’s itinerary:

1. VegOut Best of LA Awards Party

Friday, March 1

A few months ago, we hosted some polls asking you guys what your favorite spots around Los Angeles were, from your top burger joints, pizza parlors, pop-ups, and more. Some hard decisions, couple of weeks, and thousands of results later, the winners had been decided! Come celebrate their victory, along with food, drinks, and good vibes at the VegOut Best of LA Awards Party from 8-11pm in DTLA!
