Portland VegFest '12 Rocks the Convention Center!

On September 22 and 23 more than 6,300 people from the Pacific Northwest and well beyond flooded through the Portland VegFest doors and devoured hundreds of food samples, shopped with our veg-savvy exhibitors, attended cooking demos from celebrity chefs like The Jazzy Vegetarian's Laura Theodore, and listened to inspiring talks from Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Dr. Mark Messina, Ruth Heidrich, Ph.D., and so much more!

We are so thankful for our generous sponsors, 120+ amazing exhibitors and product donors, more than 400 dedicated volunteers, and the thousands of you who discovered and celebrated the wonderful benefits of plant-based food. We couldn't do it without you! Be sure to mark your calendars for Portland VegFest 2013 on September 21 & 22!
