Twin Cities Veg Fest is the Midwest’s largest vegan festival! It’s an annual event with something for everyone including vegan food vendors, cooking demos, speakers, music, art, informational booths, and vegan product vendors.
In 2012 Compassionate Action for Animals (CAA) organized the first ever Twin Cities Veg Fest, which welcomed over 1,200 attendees. The event was a huge success thanks to the many committee members, volunteers, and attendees who took part. The event is organized by a volunteer committee supported by CAA’s executive director.
The festival moved outside in 2017 to accommodate growing crowds and now takes place at Harriet Island Regional Park each September. We expect over 10,000 attendees in 2020.
In addition to fabulous food and products, many organizations such as farm sanctuaries, animal advocacy groups, and dietitians take part. These exhibitors educate the public about taking action for animals and how to follow a healthy vegan diet.
