3rd Annual Veg Quest...



Join your fellow veg-head adventurers in taking on vegan Portland. In this race organized by Try Vegan PDX, teams of 2-4 people will solve clues and complete challenges, which will lead them to vegan businesses in Portland. Besides having a great time, you are sure to discover some great new options in Portland's amazing vegan scene. Mark your calendars! Winning teams get prizes!

Costumes encouraged but not required.
$10 per person in advance, $15 the day of.

Registration is open at



What people have said about their Veg Quest experience...

* Great clues, great vegan places to visit, fun teammate, delicious pizza at the end :)

* It was great, I didn't know what to expect, but it exceeded my hopes.

* I enjoyed meeting new people in the Portland vegan community and helping my teammates discover local veggie establishments.

* Well organized. Grateful for the food at the end since there wasn't a minute to stop and eat lunch.

* Though I was not working and don't know how many folks came by, any exposure for non vegans and for my business is a win.

* It was so much fun - great way to spend a day!

* It was a learning experience for us, as we recently moved to PDX and didn't have bikes yet nor up-to-date phone technology. Nonetheless, we persevered and won a cookbook!

* I had a great time!!

See you there!

    Fun & exhausting. We learned of a couple new vegan places & revisited many. We didn't get to finish as when we returned to the park there wasn't anyone there to tell us where to go next. So we missed the finale.

    Another great year. The format had changed a bit so there were a few snags, but overall I think it went really well!

    There will be a prize bag for the best dressed team so it would be a good idea to come dressed up- in costume or coordinated with your team members. =)

    Registration will close in an hour and we only have a few spots left. This means there is no guarantee we will be able to register people the day of, but if we are, we are asking that you bring the exact fee of $15. If you want to ensure your participation, it is recommended to register within the hour (and save $5). See you tomorrow!

    Pre-registration will close Friday at 5pm. If you forget to pre-register, you will still be able to register the day of, it will just be a few bucks more. Thanks! It's gonna be fun!

    Exactly 10 days left until Veg Quest. We have had more teams register and only have a handful more spots left for teams that haven't registered yet. The sooner you register the better, and remember you will save a few bucks doing so! See you soon!

    Remember that registering in advance costs $10/person, but it's $15 if you wait until the day of! You need to register at to take advantage of advance registration discounts. See you there!

    17 more days until Veg Quest! We only have space for 14 teams, or 56 people, so if you are definite about participating we would recommend registering sooner than later to secure your place. See you soon!

  • deanna

    21 more days and the teams keep registering. What location do you hope is a checkpoint this year?

    June 8, 2013

  • Kelly

    This is my first time attending, so please excuse me if this is a dumb question: the teams are made up of 2-4, but I was only allowed to "bring" 2 others. Can I still have a team of 4? Thank you!

    June 5, 2013

    • deanna

      I also updated the event so you can RSVP with up to 3 guests =)

      You can also show up the day of, just register yourself now, and we will match you that day. That is about how half of the people who compete do- some forms teams ahead of time, and some get their teammates the day of. =)
