Vegan Things to Do in L.A. This Weekend: December 13-15

We search the web for the best vegan things to do in the city, so you don’t have to. Here’s what’s happening this weekend.

Friday, December 13

The Nightmare Before Christmas Art Show

Huntington Beach

Grab a brew and a vegan cupcake while you peruse the art selection at The Tattoo Gallery. The event will be held from 7-10pm and feature a DJ, raffle prizes, goodies from Two Birds Baking Co, and a Tim Burton-esque collection from local artists.

Dine at Flore Vegan Cuisine

Silver Lake

The beloved Silverlake restaurant was just served a notice to vacate due to a developer's plans to gentrify the area. While the business was allowed an extension and will be open until January 31, consider these the final days to get your Lemon Berry Cake.

TGI Fridays by 818 Vegan Collective

Van Nuys

Head to The Valley from 6:30-10pm for vegan eats from Srey Vegan, Sweet Serenity, Veggietizeme, Boricua Bowls, and Voodoo Vegan.

Vegan Pop-Ups in Highland Park

Highland Park

Come for a cocktail at Block Party, stay for mouthwatering vegan street food vendors, and cap off the night with a midnight donut at Donut Friend. The party starts at 6pm and rages until 12am!

Saturday, December 14

Besties Vegan Paradise Saturday Sessions

Silver Lake

Quick! DM this vegan market to reserve your spot at this complimentary guided yoga session. Afterwards, pop into the shop for a freshly pressed juice made by the futuristic JuiceBot.

Medicinal Plant Hike

Modjeska Canyon

Head down to Orange County for some much-needed outdoor zen during the holidays. This donation-based event begins at 1:30pm with a guided yoga session followed by a nature walk in search of medicinal herbs. Join in the reiki circle and sample some foraged tea before you leave. All proceeds will support Live Will Bakery—a Long Beach-based vegan pop-up.

Cooking Classes at SunCafé

Studio City

Sign up to reserve your spot for this vintage dinner party-themed cooking course. Follow along with Chef Ron Russell as he demonstrates recipes including Waldorf Salad, Lemon-Glazed Tofu with Blacked Zucchini over White Bean Coulis, and Double Chocolate Pie.

Naples Island Holiday Boat Parade

Long Beach

Grab an oat milk hot cocoa and find a spot amongst the crowd to watch the floating holiday extravaganza. The large boats kick off in front of Naples Plaza at 6pm. Once the boats have passed you by, linger a bit longer and stroll along the canals—taking in the marvelous decorations of these beachside homes.

Sunday, December 15

Tamalada & Tamale Festival

Santa Ana

Support a vegan pop-up-turned-brick-and-mortar at this community charity event. La Vegana Mexicana will be serving up vegan tamales along with drinks and live music. Follow the business on Instagram to purchase your ticket. All proceeds will benefit Latino Health Access’ Diabetes Self-Management Program. Mark your calendar for another Santa Ana-based tamale festival on Thursday, December 19, which will also feature La Vegana Mexicana.

KW Vegan Fair

Baba’s Vegan Cafe Pop-Up

Leimert Park

Stop by this Leimert Park area pop-up for one (or four) of its famous flaky veggie patties. Look out for specialities to round out your meal including vegan lasagna, Baba Notyo Nachos, and Baba’s Lentil Soup. The stand is open from 3:30pm-8pm or until sold out.
