Iconic musical artists and bomb vegan food? Name a better duo!

Happy Coachella season! If you plan to attend the oh-so-popular outdoor musical festival in Southern California, we have you covered on the vegan front. Without further ado, here is our list of the must-try vegan options at Coachella 2023.

Forever Pie


Los Angeles’ brand new vegan pizza joint makes its Coachella debut this year! Their special event menu includes slices of McLovin, Meat Haters, and Pepperoni Pizza as well as Wingz and Mozz Sticks. Our top suggestion? The McLovin Pizza. It’s like a cheeseburger in pizza form.

Block Party serves all-vegan cocktails, all day long. Owner and Mixologist Jason Eisner will be there with his team serving cocktails inspired by Bad Bunny, Rosalia, and Frank Ocean. First thing we’re trying is the Super Rich Kids—a frozen cocktail with banana chip-infused vodka, pineapple, creme de coconut, and orange.
