This annual block party is bringing vegan fun to the South Florida community complete with plant-based eats, drinks, music, and more!
This fall, Vegan Block Party makes its return at Miami’s Virginia Key Beach. Coined as the “Plant-Based Party of the Year,” thousands of attendees join the event annually to eat, sip, and celebrate all things vegan.
Vegan Block Party was founded in 2018 by Ariel Levin when she was just 20 years old. After attending the Eat, Drink, Vegan festival on a spring break trip in Los Angeles, Levin became inspired to bring the plant-based festivities to the East Coast as a way to spread the vegan message to the South Florida community in a fun, relatable way.
Vegan Block Party Vendor Lineup
The Vegan Block Party vendor lineup includes local plant-based vendors with offerings from a variety of different backgrounds and cuisines, such as fried chick’n sandwiches from Isabel’s Vegan Cuisine, vegan rice krispie treats from Krispie Verse, colorful fruit bowls from Miami Fruit, spicy vegan mac from UniTaste, and vegan steak, egg, cheese, and hash browns on a croissant from Succulent Street Food, to name a few. Of course, a party isn’t complete without desserts, so guests can get their vegan treat fix with items like plant-based ice cream from Angie’s Epicurean and pastries from Shena’s Confections.
In addition to the massive lineup of plant-powered food, which will be located in the Vendor Village, guests can expect to find private beach access, a fully vegan bar, celebrity influencers (past celeb attendees have included Chef Chloe Coscarelli and fitness coach Torre Washington), free wellness workshops, animal adoptions, a Family Fun Zone that features games and face painting, vegan merch like handcrafted jewelry courtesy of Sandra’s Divine Gems, music, and entertainment.
Vegan Block Party Date, Time, and Location
The festival will take place at Miami’s historic Virginia Key Beach on Saturday, October 16 from 12-8pm. Attendees are encouraged to bring swimwear and enjoy the ocean in between all of the food, shopping, and entertainment.
