VegFest Priorities

VegMichigan, host of VegFest, is a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation. VegMichigan promotes the health, environmental, and ethical benefits of a vegan lifestyle and will give priority to any business or nonprofit that aligns with its mission. All products must be free of animal ingredients. Products and services that will be given priority include:

  • Vegan food products. We welcome fresh and packaged, savory and sweet vegan cuisine and gourmet meal and snack items. Most food exhibits will be placed in our Food Court, but may also be placed in our exhibitor area. If you are a Food Vendor,  click here for Food Vendor guidelines. 
  • Individual licensed health care professionals who provide information to their patients about the health benefits of a plant-based diet.  Examples: MD, DO, DC, RD, NP, PA, DDS.
  • Group medical practices that support patients who choose a plant-based diet.  We especially welcome those that have a licensed vegan health practitioner present at the event or whose exhibit materials help educate the public about a plant-based diet.
  • Products for home, yard or personal use that offer great plant-based alternatives to those that normally contains animal ingredients.  Examples: plant or mineral based cleaners, soaps, cosmetics, wallets, belts, shoes, clothing or gardening products.
  • Products for use in cooking, storing or growing fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, grains, or seeds
  • Products that are Eco-Friendly and sustainable such as recycled, recyclable, biodegradable and “green” products.
  • Nonprofit organizations that advocate for animals. 
  • Nonprofit organizations that advocate for a plant-based diet or for a reduction in meat, eggs, and dairy.
  • Fine art and crafts that celebrate and inspire respect for animals and the natural environment.
  • Products for use by companion animals.
  • Innovative products and services that may be of interest to our attendees for general better living.
  • Products and services, or nonprofit groups, that promote a healthy lifestyle. Examples include exercise and fitness, travel and recreation, clean water and air.  

If you business or nonprofit fits one of these categories, please fill out a Preliminary Application. VegMichigan reserves the right to decline an exhibitor’s application.  Factors we consider include compatibility with the theme of our event, the mission of our organization, and the need for exhibits that provide variety and interest.
