The reviews are pouring in, and they are filled with positivity! With over 5,000 attendees, Twin Cities Veg Fest 2023 was a huge hit. Survey responses are overflowing with praise for the wide array of activities and booths. People loved everything – from the fantastic vendors with delicious food to the fun activities, tasty food demonstrations, and exciting giveaways. The music and speakers were a hit too, making sure there was something enjoyable for everyone. And who could forget the excitement of our surprise celebrity guest, Ms. Tabitha Brown, who generously took time to visit with vendors and attendees and even posted a reel about it on her Instagram account!
But it’s not just about the fun; the event also made a significant impact for the animals. Over 50% of attendees were not yet vegan. We were excited to see that the vast majority of them expressed their commitment to taking steps toward a more compassionate lifestyle. Many said they would cut down on dairy and/or eggs, while others pledged to reduce their purchases of products made from animals. Almost everyone indicated their intention to share this newfound information with others.
Maybe you didn’t get to experience everything at the festival, or perhaps you had such a great time that you want to relive it all. Well, we’ve got you covered with a photo slideshow on our website. Take a look here!
While we couldn’t capture every moment, we did our best to include highlights from the VegFund Mainstage with its engaging presenters, food demos, and the Twin Cities Vegan Chef Challenge awards. The St. Paul Cultural Star stage brought us fabulous music, and don’t forget the 100+ booths offering delectable vegan food, products, and valuable information. We even had activities for the kids in the Climb Theatre family area and more fun in the Farmaste Fun Zone. The slides will give you a taste of it all!
Most importantly, our photos showcase the diverse and compassionate community of participants who made this festival so special. For many, connecting with fellow attendees was the highlight of the event. Enjoy browsing through the photos, and we look forward to seeing you again next year!
