If you’ve never been to Twin Cities Veg Fest, the cooking demos at the fair are a chance to get a taste of what the festival is like. The vegan food festival is the largest of its kind in the Midwest and has a huge line-up of entertainment, speakers, and cooking demos, plus an array of product vendors, all celebrating compassionate living.

The local non-profit Compassionate Action for Animals (CAA) organizes the event. We also run the annual Twin Cities Vegan Chef Challenge, happening now through August 31. Diners sample vegan dishes at area restaurants and vote for their favorites, with the winner announced at Twin Cities Veg Fest.
