Asheville VeganFest Returns to Pack Square Park October 3

The event will include local vendors, live music, giveaways, and more!

Asheville VeganFest makes returns to Pack Square Park on Sunday, October 3 in Asheville, North Carolina. The event will promote vegan-friendly businesses and organizations in the Asheville area and beyond. Vegfest Expos and Triangle Vegfest are behind the production of the festival, in partnership with sponsors such as Wild Earth Pets, Superieur Electrolytes, Asheville Vegan Society, and Piedmont Farm Animal Refuge of Pittsboro, NC.

Plant-Based Food, Beauty Products, Apparel, and More from Over 90 Vendors

Festival attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy plant-based culinary delights, samples, and giveaways from vendors such as A Peace of Soul, Imagine Vegan Cafe, Viet Grill, and Compassion Company. Entertainment will include live music, a DJ, and a children’s Family Fun Zone. In addition, over 90 vendors will bring a variety of vegan, eco-conscious wellness and beauty products, apparel, health services, educational resources, and more.

While lots of human treats will be available, festival sponsor Wild Earth plans to provide snacks for the fur babies as well.

“The treats are so good that humans love them too,” says Mike May, a member of the marketing team for Wild Earth. Our festival is not pet-friendly per the City of Asheville, but you can definitely pick up delicious treats to give to them when you get home.”

Asheville VeganFest Location

The Asheville VeganFest location will be at 80 Court Plaza, Asheville, NC 28801 and will take place from 11am-6pm, rain or shine. Admission is free, however there will be a limited number of VIP Goody Bags for $25 each, as well as a fundraising effort in which to participate. Guests who donate $5 or $10, or those who purchase a VIP bag, will be entered to win exciting prizes from some of the sponsors, including a t-shirt and a reusable bag filled with samples and coupons.

For all of the latest updates on the event, visit ashevilleveganfest.com or vegfestexpos.com.
