A List of 2016 Vegan Festivals

I know there are several lists out there already, but of the ones I've found, a lot of the links don't work.  Or they're links to old events....like last year old.

All of these vegan festivals are FREE

...as far as I know, unless otherwise listed.  Most events that are selling tickets are offering discounted tickets if bought in advance.  

I'll try to keep updating this as the year moves along.  A lot of VegFests have already come and gone in the months prior to May 2016.  I won't post too many of those because, what's the point?

If I missed something, feel free to shoot me a comment and let me know!

  1. Only downsides here was that I’m not sure if they were expecting such a crowd as they did not have nearly enough servers and sometimes it would take a really long time for service guy to come. But at event space NYC they tried to keep a smiles on their face.

  2. Are we talking about the falafel guys? They were lovely, despite the wait. Plus it gave us time to chat it up with people around us, as I love to talk to strangers! I'm just still annoyed about the bag! Why didn't that lady just say something!?!? It's those little things that wind up bugging me lol
