2nd annual PHX Vegan Food Festival to return
After last year’s successful debut, the PHX Vegan Food Festival is returning on Saturday, Feb. 25 at the Phoenix Theatre/Phoenix Art Museum campus.
The second annual event will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and will have expanded space, more vendors, food trucks and beverage stations and an added entertainment area with an upgraded VIP experience.
Folks with VIP tickets will be able to enter the outdoor event an hour early. There will be vegan and vegan-friendly food trucks, restaurants and products at the event along with chef and vegan expert presentations.
Live, local music will play from three entertainment stages during the event and no-host bars will be located throughout the event as well.
“We were blown away by the reception we received from the first PHX Vegan Food Festival, proving that the Valley has been hungry for this type of event. We learned a lot from the inaugural event, so the second annual festival promises to be even bigger and better, creating more excitement and awareness for the vegan community,” said Daniel Davisson, founder of Davisson Entertainment, the organizers of the festival.
Enjoy small bites, or get a meal from one of the 65 vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants, food trucks and vendors at the event. You’ll be able to get food from places such as 24 Carrots, Café Lalibela, The Coronado, Juice Core, Local Lunchbox, Mi Vegana Madre, Pomegranate Café, Urban Beans, Simon’s Hot Dogs, and Southern Fried Vegan.
General admission is $25 and VIP admission is $50.
There will even be presentations from culinary and nutrition experts, including Chef Jason Wyrick of The Vegan Taste, Kristin Lajeunesse, Blogger and Author of Will Travel for Vegan Food, and Author, Wellness Coach and Vegan Chef, Tess Challis.
A general admission ticket will get you into all of the events, while a VIP ticket includes special seating along with drink tickets, a swag bag and complimentary parking for the first 150 guests.
