VegMichigan is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization focused on promoting the health, environmental, and ethical benefits of a plant-based diet. We work to educate the public on how to be healthy, kind, and sustainable by offering a wide range of activities for learning and socializing.
Who we are
The largest vegan nonprofit organization in the state, VegMichigan is an inclusive organization that welcomes all, no matter where they are on their journeys, to our events – from omnivores to longtime vegans.
VegMichigan believes everyone should have access to opportunities that will teach them how to improve their health, eat in alignment with their values, and lessen their environmental impact. Our educational programs provide communities around the state with the knowledge, resources, and support necessary for those new to eating plant-based, as well as those looking to increase their advocacy efforts.
What We do
Based on the city of Farmington’s current moratorium on large events, the recent executive orders, and the latest health and safety guidelines, we are unfortunately unable to move forward with hosting this year’s Free Festival originally planned for September 13 in downtown Farmington. Although we are disappointed we won’t be able to enjoy vegan food favorites and live music together this year, the health and safety of attendees, vendors, and volunteers is our top priority.
Free Festival highlights include a selection of delicious plant-based foods, sustainable shopping, live music, and more!
