Pittsburgh Vegan Festival is our city's largest vegan event, showcasing the best and most exciting vegan food, dessert, drinks, products and services, while also entertaining guests with cultural dance and music, wellness activities, games, kids' activities, guest speakers, cooking demos and more!
Pittsburgh Vegan Festival is exciting for vegans and non-vegans, as all are welcome to try new things and celebrate life with wonderful food, entertainment and people!
Pittsburgh Vegan Festival was launched after many, many years of smaller vegan events hosted by Amethyst, who wishes to spread compassionate eating and living through-out our city and beyond. The first two festivals (2014) had turn outs of 500, then 700 guests, and growing!
