When we started our first vegetarian food festival six years ago, we never dreamed that these extravaganzas would take on wide-ranging lives of their own.
We’re Sarah Gross and Nira Paliwoda, founders of U.S. Veg Corp. Our company puts on fully-vegan events that range from our large-scale vegetarian food festivals in NYC and Arizona, to our smaller vegan food competitions, Vegan Drinks gatherings, meatless meal nights, and the occasional cruelty-free fashion show or ping pong tournament.
This fall, we’re joining forces with some of our favorite West Coast powerhouses to bring our style of Veg Fest--complete with expert speakers, chefs, athletes, amazing food vendors, and kids' amusement-makers--to Los Angeles. In addition to the usual highlights, for the first time we’re building an Innovation Pavilion. This corner of the festival will showcase the brands and technology driving the world’s most environmentally-friendly and most humane meat, dairy, and eggs--which, of course, is the vegan kind.
So stay tuned as we announce all the latest exhibitors, top-drawer speakers, superstar chefs, sponsors, and launch party details! Join us on Facebook, and invite friends to join you when you rsvp on Facebook (facebook.com/cavegfoodfest). Get instant updates by following our Twitter (@cavegfoodfest). And get your daily dose of vegan food porn and bright thoughts on our Instagram (@cavegfoodfest).
This year’s festival benefits Mercy For Animals whose mission is our ultimate mission as well: to put an end to animal cruelty.
The CA Vegetarian Food Festival will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and will take place rain or shine. The Raleigh Studios complex features convenient parking, dog-friendly space, and a location central to all of SoCal. Can't wait to see you there in November!
