Portland VegFest 2013

Oregon's largest plant-based food event!

On September 21 and 22 more than 6,500 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 Miyoko Shinner with her vegan artisan cheeses, and listened to inspiring talks from Brenda Davis, RD, Dr. John McDougall, Will Tuttle, PhD, Dr. Hans Diehl, 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! We also welcome your help in planning the 2014 VegFest. Please contact to join our planning team.

We would also like to take a moment to once again thank all the Portland VegFest 2013 sponsors - Platinum Print sponsor THE OREGONIAN, and Golden Carrot sponsor BOOK PUBLISHING COMPANY; as well as Silver Sunflower sponsors: Attune Foods, Earthly Gourmet, Kelso Photography, Mt. Tabor Veterinary Care, Natural Awakenings, Organically Grown Company, Professional Platinum Cooking Systems, ReDirect Guide, Tasty Bite, Taza Chocolate, Toby's Family Foods, Turtle Island Foods, V-dog, and Whole Foods Market-Bellevue.
