In the exhibit hall there will also be national brand samples, eco-friendly products, cruelty-free fashion, children’s activities, door prizes, literature, cookbooks and more. All vegan, of course! “We are thrilled to be putting together another event,” says
Paul Krause, president, VegMichigan. “VegFest is a diverse event that features exhibitors, restaurants and food companies, cooking demonstrations and celebrity speakers to promote the awareness of the health, environmental and ethical consequences of our food choices.
