Vegfest BannerThe Festival is August 22, 2015 from 11 AM to 6 PM

This festival brings together an amazing array of vegan natural food providers, top national
speakers and chefs, and educational exhibitors in a fun and welcoming environment.
It is a chance to talk directly to food producers, learn the newest items in the marketplace,
taste free food samples, shop at show special discounts, or simply learn what vegan foods are
available and where you can find them! Whether you are a longtime  vegan, or someone
simply wanting to add more healthy and delicious foods to your meal repertoire, or if you
are just curious what it’s all about, you are welcome here!  The admission is free, there is
free food sampling, free speaker presentations and a Lanta bus stop across the street.

Last year, despite the weather, the South Bethlehem Green Way had nearly
10,000 people who were interested in committing to the vegan experience.
