SWFL Veg Fest showcases the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle for our health, compassion for animals and protecting our planet. This event welcomes all vegans and non. Come see how easy it is to find healthy plant-based foods in Southwest Florida.
Find local sources of eco-friendly and cruelty-free products. Learn about the science behind the benefits of a plant-based diet. Featuring expert speakers, cooking demos, vendors, and animal rescues with entertainment and activities for the whole family! There will also be a kids zone where children can plant seedlings, learn about worms and compost, or take a kid-friendly yoga class. They'll also be a storytime, a cooking demo, and a visit from our very own local American Ninja Warrior, Morgan “Moose” Wright!
