Philly is getting its very own Vegfest. Philly Vegfest is a day long celebration of the benefits of a plant-based diet. Join us on Saturday, June 14 at "The Shambles" in Headhouse Square (2nd & Pine). Delicious vegan food, cooking demos, and more! Save the date and stay tuned for updates and more info.

I will update when I have more information. I don't know what the start time will be yet.

    Fun, interesting. I enjoyed the various food samples. It was good seeing so many out in support of compassionate sustainable food choices.

    It was great to be out in good weather and see several of you. I hope all who came enjoyed the event even if we weren't all together...A hard thing to do in such a free - form event.

    Hey all! I'm new to the group (in person) and am not seeing anyone hang in' near the fountain. Is everyone kinda doing their own thing? If so, I will just go wander, but it would be great to meet some of you!

      Hi! I'd also love to meet some of you:) I'll be walking around with my 8 year old daughter. Wearing a flower dress and short black curly hair. Feel free to approach :)

    I'm at 2nd and Lombard. Where is the group?

    I will try to make a large sign for our meetup group-- it's time for us to have at least one large sign for such events. So... I will have the sign and look out for it. 12:30pm at 2nd/Pine sounds good, just like Sara mentioned below. Look out for a dorky Indian dude in glasses, with the meetup sign! :)

      the event says 11 am, so will everyone be meeting at the fountain at 12:30 or 11?

      June 13, 2014

    • Himanshu

      I think sara said she will get there at 12:30pm. I might get there by noon. But yes the event starts at 11am and there are some cooking demos at various times so come accordingly.

      June 14, 2014

  • Valerie

    Can't wait to see the dorky dude!

    June 13, 2014

  • Felicia

    I'd like to meet up with others for lunch! Always good to txt if can't find each other - whee exactly is the meeting place?

    June 13, 2014

    • Himanshu

      Sara noted below that we should meet by the fountain in the middle of the 2nd street at Lombard St.

      June 13, 2014

    • Himanshu

      I will have a meetup sign board to try to get people to notice

    Hi, I have to work on Saturday but will be by later hopefully by 5 PM.

    June 13, 2014

    • Himanshu

      I will most likely not be able to stick around for that long, but hopefully you will be able to see other folks or enjoy the event regardless!

    Hi all! I will be volunteering at the 'Vegan Spirituality Group' table at the VegFest for a lot of the afternoon. Please stop by and see us! :)

  • Jamie

    Wow! I'm finally in town and can come to an event!

    Someone from the NJ vegan group wrote this:
    I spoke to one of the organizers and was told that they would like everyone to enter on the Lombard Street side. The demos will be on the other side of the Shambles. It will not be a very big area so it is going to be crowded. Anyone who wants to meet up, let's try meeting at 12:00 by the fountain across from the Shambles. I do not know what the lines are going to be like to get food. But we can try to get something to eat at that time. I would like to see the demos too. I was told there will also be an unrelated craft festival taking place in the same vicinity as VegFest. It is best to take public transportation if you can.

    I thought I should pass this along.

    It will be challenging for all of us to meet in one spot as the area is small and there are a lot of us and others going. Stan and I are not exactly sure when we will be there since we have morning and late afternoon plans. However, I'll be on the lookout at 2d and Pine at 12:30 for anyone who wants to grab lunch together.

    I'd love to meet up at the event, Sara!

    June 9, 2014

  • Valerie

    Yes, I would like to do that.. Sometimes I go to stuff and can't find everybody!

    June 9, 2014

  • Sara P.

    I hope to see everyone on Saturday at the Vegfest. When I listed the event, I did not have the times available to me. I understand that it is from 11 to 4 according to Dave. We'll plan to be there for lunch for sure, so if anyone wants to join us, please let me know.

    June 2, 2014

    • Dave

      Sara- Can you suggest a time and place for anyone who wants to meet up?
