Vegan Week Events

The Mayor of Asheville, Esther Manheimer, has proclaimed the week of August 27- September 2 to be Vegan Awareness Week in Asheville! The ceremonial proclamation highlights some of the great reasons to choose a plant strong diet (though we would add that kindness to animals is the number one reason that many folks cite for going vegan). This proclamation reflects just how vegan friendly the town we are lucky enough to call home is!

To celebrate Vegan Awareness week we will be be hosting multiple events in and around Asheville, culminating with the big Asheville VegFest: A Celebration of Food and Drink, taking place on Sunday, September 2nd at Park Square Park.

Be sure to check the schedule often as we will be adding further details.
