Bethlehem Veg Fest

July 13th, 2019, 11am-6pm

“VegFest celebrates the growing vegan culture and sustainable living practices throughout Bethlehem and the Lehigh Valley. Our festival includes cooking demonstrations, renowned speakers, live music, as well as over 60+ food, small business, and craft vendors from up and down the east coast. The event fills with vegan and vegetarian festival goers, and others just curious to learn more about this lifestyle. Bethlehem VegFest 2018 was a great success! Nearly 6,000 people made their way through the festival, sampling local produce, taste-testing vegan cuisine, enjoying live music or even practicing some yoga. Participants of VegFest agreed that the “open to everyone” feeling attracted a crowd of happy, healthy individuals, eager to learn more about vegan and raw food choices, cruelty-free products and sustainable living.”
