Multi-City Vegan Festival Vegandale Kicks Off This Weekend in Chicago

The vegan festival is making stops in Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles!

Going to vegan food festivals is one of the best ways to try food from the most popular vendors, buy new merch, and meet like-minded people. If you’re on the lookout for an event to attend this season, the multi-city vegan festival Vegandale kicks off this weekend—and they’ve added Los Angeles to the lineup!

Vegan Food and Drink Festival

What started as a one-block event in Toronto several years back has now expanded into a multi-city event with several stops in the United States. Vegandale is a vegan food and drink festival that hosts hundreds of vegan vendors. In addition to delicious grub and refreshing drinks, the event features epic art installations, live music, contests, dancing, and more.
