This year promises to be the biggest and best VegFest ever! Enjoy over 60 amazing restaurants, free taste samples, cooking demos, cruelty-free shopping, fun for the kids, over 10 entertaining and informative presentations, including Hollywood celebrity Alicia Silverstone and the very popular Dr. Michael Greger. We have doubled the hall space, widened the aisles, and added seating to give attendees plenty of room to enjoy the event. We also added some brand new attractions!

It will be held at Michigan’s premier convention center, The Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi. Get advance tickets online for only $12.50, or $17 at the door.

From Sheri:  I will be attending VegFest, and I hope you will join me!  The more we go and ask for WFPB vendors, the more options we will have.  Please also visit the booth for the Plant Based Prevention of Disease Conference (!  The May 2019 conference is in Raleigh NC, and will be bringing the conference to Michigan in May 2020!
