Hey vegans, vegetarians, and plant-eating folks, remember when we told you that VegFest was coming back after a two-year hiatus? Well, the all-vegan-everything street festival has released the list of vendors that will be serving up delicious vegan grub, selling fabulous vegan products, and sharing music and informational chats. Needless to say, VegFest is coming back strong.

Currently, there are about 40 vendors (!!) booked for this vegan extravaganza going down on June 9, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Bainbridge Green. As for eats — which is basically the heartbeat of any celebration — the lineup is looking pretty darn drool-worthy so far: expect to taste vegan dishes from Kung Fu Hoagies, Freakin’ Vegan, Yogi Dogs, Macro VegetarianMom Pops, and more.

In between scarfing down some vegan empanadas, peruse tables of vegan-friendly products and apparel from the likes of GSL Organics, Wear Bare Bones, and Fanciful Fox. The Humane League and the American Vegan Society, alongside many other non-profit and vegan organizations, will be on-site to mingle with you like-minded folks, as will Indego Bike Share and Green Mountain Energy.

In addition to the marvelous vendor selection at VegFest, there will be plenty of entertainment throughout the day. Keep an eye out for  The Sam Greenfield Vegan Jazz Trio, along with two other musical performances and a culinary demo from vegan Chef Lenka. A UPenn lifestyle medicine affiliate and Indra Lahiri, founder of Indraloka Animal Sanctuary — a sponsor of VegFest — will also give some informative talks. Strike up a conversation with the folks of Indraloka and learn more about their mission at their booth during the festival.
