Sprouting in May Santa Clarita’s First-Ever VegFest
The Santa Clarita Valley (SCV) VegFest, is proud to announce the national non-profit organization The Gentle Barn, as their new presenting sponsor. In addition, organizers of Santa Clarita’s first-ever vegan festival, have also announced that 20 percent of the proceeds from the one-day outdoor festival will benefit Kakao, Charity Water and local non-profit organizations Bridge to Home and Family Promise. The festival is set to sprout in Santa Clarita on Saturday, May 4 from noon to 9 p.m. in Central Park, located at 27150 Bouquet Canyon Road.
“With the SCV Veg Fest, we’re spreading the message that compassion and love is important – for our health, for ourselves, the animals, and our planet. The non-profit organizations we are working with promote a similar message,” said festival co-founder Jess Guidroz. “We are dedicating 20 percent of our proceeds to non-profit organizations we believe in, and we’re really excited to have a presenting sponsor (The Gentle Barn) that epitomizes compassion and community—two foundational intentions that the VegFest was built on.”
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. General admission includes unlimited pours of beer, wine and kombucha on the festival day (alcohol served from noon to 5:00 p.m.) and a sampling of various vegan foods.
In addition to the eats and drinks, there will also be two DJs spinning all day, a lounge and dance area, celebrity vegan speakers, yoga in the park, vegan-friendly merchandise, a children’s play area, and much more. The high-vibes festival is a holistic experience for the senses and will close out with a finale DJ dance party at the main stage, featuring spectacular lights and danceable mixes.
“The SCV VegFest is going to be a high-vibe celebration of delicious food and drinks, personal health, and sustainability. We’re attempting to “Zero-Waste” the fest with the intention to leave as little a footprint as possible. Ultimately, it’s about living a healthy, happy lifestyle that improves life for everyone here.
“This festival is going to be a blast, and not just for vegans. It’s open to everyone and anyone who wants to learn about living a more healthy and sustainable lifestyle,” says festival co-founder Nicole Guidroz. “We recently added family-friendly price options because we want families to come out and learn about a healthier lifestyle together.”
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.
