Harriet Island Regional Park

Last month, we had our annual festival outdoors for the first time, and it was a huge success with more than 7,000 in attendance. That’s 3,000 more than the year before!

We look forward to riding this momentum for continued growth into the next year, and we’ll be working to ensure that we can provide all of the resources needed to satisfy the bigger crowds. That means we’ll have more exhibitors and a different layout that allows for shorter lines.

And though Como Park was a lovely, we’ve decided to take the festival to Harriet Island for the coming year for a number of reasons. Harriet Island offers:

  • More room to grow
  • Easier load-in for exhibitors
  • One large, better-equipped kitchen
  • More accessibility via light rail to shuttle service at Union Depot
  • More parking for people with disabilities

We’ll also get to move away from the zoo at Como Park, which increased traffic and felt in conflict with our mission to help animals.

And so, Harriet Island it will be, next year and forevermore!

We’re already recruiting for new planning committee members, and soon we’ll be on the lookout for sponsors and exhibitors. If you’re interested in being a part of Twin Cities Veg Fest 2018 in any of these ways, please contact Nathan Gaut at
