Veg Fest on Granville St.

  • July 27, 2013 · 12:45 PM

We attended Veg Fest last year and plan to check it out again this year.

Veg Fest Vancouver is a day-long outdoor festival, happening for it’s third year on July 27th, 2013 from 10am – 6pm. The festival will feature vegan food vendors, tables for animal protection organizations, local businesses, and much more! Best of all, it’s entirely FREE to attend!

Location

The festival is located right in the heart of downtown Vancouver, taking over 3 blocks of Granville Street, between Dunsmuir & Smithe.

If you are driving, there is all-day parking for $6 at the Easy Park under Pacific Centre Mall, only 1 block away. Click here for more info.

 

Let's meet at the food trucks/stands.

    I went with my friend Lisa and we ordered the yam fries from Loving Hut and she bought some Zimt chocolate "cookie dough" and met up with my hs friend Emma who runs Zimt, the carnval games are just for children the prizes are cute and we went by Lush too. It was a good turnout!

    Was there from 1 to 2:00 PM. Though expected more, it was still interesting to see what's out there.

    It was very impressive to see how Veg Fest has grown from previous years. It would be nice in future, if possible, to have some food sampling. It was nice to see Liberty, Amanda, Brian, Kip, Alison, Anita, Gareena, Sanjay, Pero, Bobby, Johnathan, Nathalie and so many others come out for this event.

    Such a great turn out and for those of you that stopped by the PETA booth to say hi thank you :) was so much more variety than last year which was only one block long so we totally upgraded this year.

    Couldn't find anyone from meetup in food truck area and asked around but did meet someone else from vegan meetup there. Anyhow, tried to looking for a big group somewhere from 12:30 to 1 pm and still blind as a bat. Anyhow, lined up at Loving Hut and tested one of their sold-out burgers.

    I somehow missed this, but can come by after 1:30 or so... hopefully will run into a few of you that I know well enough to recognize! (I'll be walking a dog who's maybe more recognizable to some than I am, he's been to the solstice beach event twice now...)

    I will be at the Earthsave Canada booth, so please come by and say hi! We'd love to hear about your transition and chat veggie health and nutrition with you! FYI, Veg Directories just updated this month, so be sure to grab one for an easy guide to all the amazing places to dine Veg style in Vancouver :-)

    Are we meeting as a group or is this just notice of this event happening and we go and do our own thing?

    July 14, 2013

    • Nancy

      Yes, we are meeting as a group. We never just give notice of events. However, at these larger events, it can be difficult to hook up. Let's meet at the food trucks.
