On Saturday, February 29, from noon to 10 p.m., the PHX Vegan Food Festival, presented by Davisson Entertainment, returns to Margaret T. Hance Park, in downtown Phoenix, for its fifth anniversary season. Brand new for this year’s festival, the event is expanding from a strictly daytime event to an all-day and nighttime one.
The festival will showcase more than 100 of the state’s most beloved vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants, food trucks and vendors, as well as some out of town favorites. Restaurants, bakeries, food trucks, and food and beverage artisans will be selling their delicious creations. In addition, product and service vendors will be showcasing and selling their vegan-friendly offerings, including household products, health and wellness items, and clothing and accessories. Other festival highlights include live music; vegan-friendly wine, beer and cocktails; live art demonstrations and performing arts presentations; chef and expert demos; a yoga Zen Zone; and a kids’ activity area. Into the evening, the festival site will transform into a more adult-oriented, after-dark event with energetic music, lawn games, electric light shows, LED (light-emitting diode) and glow performers, and UV (ultraviolet) black light-activated chalk art and face paint.
Cost: Advance purchase general admission, $29; VIP admission, $69; free for children 12 and under (ticket prices will increase at the gate). Location: 1202 N. 3rd St., Phoenix. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit PhxVeganFest.com.
