About the event’s growth:
Amy “Amethyst” Cottrill, is the creator and originator of Pittsburgh’s longest-running vegan festival, having started with smaller community events in the 90’s, which gradually grew into the current expo!
For many years, the event was moving around, until it settled on the north side for years (that location was suddenly taken by an unassociated group), then moved to the north hills, and now is getting huge and has moved to Monroeville Convention Center!
Not to be confused with other unassociated festivals, this particular event is our city’s original, largest, and longest-running; and now in Monroeville!
Stay tuned for more details!
Amy “Amethyst” Cottrill is the contact, at [masked], to discuss opportunities with Pittsburgh Vegan Expo.
There will be a $5 admission for adults, to help fund this ever-growing event. Children 16 and under get in free.

Tickets are now available, through Brown Paper Tickets.
