Saturday, August 31
Thirty vendors convene in the cool, late summer air to present special, one-time collaborations. Some quick math tells us that’s 14 collabs, meaning 14 new eats to experience. Hubba hubba. Add in drinks, arcade games, karaoke, and you have an event on a scale only Vegan Street Fair can pull off.
