If you’re all about that plant-based lifestyle, this event is most definitely for you.

Veg Expo is a vegan, vegetarian, plant-based and sustainable food expo where attendees can enjoy cooking demonstrations led by celebrated chefs, sample new food products, browse vegan fashion and learn about the future of sustainable eating. The event’s mission is to connect people at all stages of their plant-based lifestyle, whether they’re vegan or simply veg-curious.

Veg Expo will feature over 200 plant-based, sustainable, edible products and services you can implement into your daily lifestyle. This year’s featured speakers include animal activists, nutritionists and fitness professionals who will pull from their years of experience to discuss the benefits of plant-based eating while debunking common myths and misinformation regarding vegan and vegetarian lifestyles. Speakers range from Olympic athletes to vegan chefs, bio-hackers, authors and more. You can view the full list of speakers HERE.

Every year Veg Expo receives about 20,000 attendees hungry for plant-based education and of course, plant-based food. Yes there will definitely be plenty of free samples for you and your family to try. Think; juices, nut-based cheese, exciting new food products and more.

If you’re looking to go beyond taste-testing the latest trends in plant-based eating, Veg Expo also offers attendees the opportunity to educate themselves on locally sourced foods and products. The event is also kid friendly, offering plenty of opportunities to keep your family entertained, while also introducing your little ones to the benefits of a healthy lifestyle in a fun, approachable environment.

For 2019, Veg Expo has also added a food truck lounge alongside their 200 vendors which means you can eat your heart out in between listening to some of today’s most inspiring and knowledgeable speakers. If you’re more of a visual learner, you can experience the sheer power of plant-based eating at the vegan bodybuilder showcase, which proves that strong bodies don’t have to depend on animal protein.

Ultimately Veg Expo aims to highlight a new wave of veganism and plant-based eating; a movement that focuses on strength, health, innovation and of course eating in a fashion that fosters the greatest sense of wellness both at home and in the communities from which our food comes from.
