VegFest 2019 Inspires & Educates
VegFest not only spreads the plant-based message on the day of the event, but it also attracts a lot of media attention before and after through TV spots, radio interviews, and countless newspaper articles all focused on promoting the benefits of a plant-based diet. The lines for VegFest were literally out the door in anticipation of our best lineup of speakers ever, which included Alicia Silverstone, Dr. Michael Greger, and Justin Abdelkader of the Detroit Red Wings, just to name a few. Attendees enjoyed free taste samples from the more than 60 restaurants and took home a large variety of free packaged items from the VegMichigan table. Attendees appreciated the bigger space that provided wider aisles, additional dining tables, and an all-around better experience for everyone who attended the event. The Kids’ Zone kept the little ones entertained all day with coloring, crafts, face painting, a bounce house, yoga, juggling, and magic performances.
The VegMichigan Board and Staff would like to extend a special thank you to the over 100 volunteers who gave their time and talent to making VegFest a big success!
