Back for a fifth year in a row, the 2020 Vegan Food Festival is returning to Phoenix. This Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm at Margaret T. Hance Park the vegan festival will host a myriad of vegan food featuring over one hundred vegan-friendly and vegan food vendors. Celebrate the colorful vegan scene in the Valley with thousands of others while listening to live music from over 25 different musicians.
Celebrate the extra day in February by scarfing down an extra plate of vegan food from some of the top vegan food trucks, artisans, and vendors from the area. This weekend’s weather promises to be perfect for the event with temperatures supposed to hit 80 degrees to ring in the spring season. In addition to the food, guests can also enjoy special presentations from chefs and vegan experts and other demonstrations throughout the day. With special activities for kids including crafts and entertainment, the event promises to be a great time for the whole family.
Along with everything else, the event will also feature a ‘Zen Zone’ for yoga classes while music plays from the two stages featuring local music all day long. The day promises to be one of the best events in Phoenix not just for vegans but anyone who loves and enjoys food.
As the evening goes on, the festival will transition into a more adult event. In the later hours, the event will feature more energetic music, an electric light show, and glow performances with UV blacklight activated chalk and face paint.
