VegFest Sprouting in May

by | Feb 27, 2019 | Community

 The first-ever festival in Santa Clarita celebrating the vegan movement is coming this May – the Santa Clarita Valley (SCV) VegFest will sprout on Saturday, May 4, 2019 from noon to 9 p.m. in Santa Clarita’s Central Park, located at 27150 Bouquet Canyon Road.
The VegFest will be an outdoor festival celebrating delicious vegan food, unlimited pours of beer, wine and kombucha, and a compassionate cruelty-free way of living. Although the name may suggest the festival is geared only towards those who abstain from meat, this is not the case at all – all ages and non-vegan eaters are welcome!
“Foodies, vegetarians, meat-eaters, really anyone who wants to learn about living a more healthy and sustainable lifestyle would have a blast at the festival,” says festival co-founder Jess Guidroz.
VegFest attendees can expect a combination of over 50 participating restaurants, vendors and food trucks, including: Beyond Meat, Delighted by Hummus, and Amaro Pizzeria, as well as a variety of local craft beer and wine vendors. In addition to scrumptious vegan cuisine to sample or buy, there will also be live music, two DJ’s, a lounge and dance area, celebrity vegan speakers, yoga in the park, vegan-friendly merchandise, a children’s play area, and much more.
The festival is the brainchild of Jess and Nicole Guidroz, who wanted to create a high-vibe event to promote a happy healthy lifestyle and to prove how exciting flavors can be despite myths about vegan foods. Proceeds from the festival benefit non-profit organizations: Kakao, Charity Water, Bridge to Home, and Family Promise.
