Des Moines VeganFest 2019

From our friends at VegLife Des Moines:

Des Moines VeganFest is back! Come get rooted in connectivity to all things veganism: animal rights, food, health, environmentalism, and activism. Send good vibes for beautiful weather as we gather for the biggest VeganFest in Iowa. The event will span both indoors and outdoors at The Atrium and Cowles Commons!!

Keep reading to see what you have to look forward to... all for the low, low ticket price of $5 (kids get in free!). Grab your tickets now to express your entry into the event! Tickets will be sold on site inside The Atrium and a wrist band will be required to purchase food from any vendor (inside or outside).

FOOD
We've got you covered with the best of the best around the Des Moines area and a few new faces from the surrounding states! Food will be on the first floor of The Atrium and out on Cowles Commons - that's right food trucks!

MERCH
You won't want to miss the action on the second floor of The Atrium! Here you'll find sweet goodies like vegan wares, cruelty free make-up, plant based soaps, veg books, and local non-profit orgs! And we're so excited to have The Side Garage back at the party to print VeganFest commemorative tee's on site!

SPEAKERS
Get excited for our two main headliners! You'll leave inspired and knowing more than when you came in.

WORKSHOPS
Have your pick! We'll have workshops on vegan athletes, parenting as a vegan, activism, teenage veganism, and environmentalism. We'll also have yoga to help you stretch and make room for more food!

COOKING DEMOS
Three demos throughout the day, including one for kiddos! Great for omnivores and herbivores alike!

SWAG BAGS
Be one of the first 150 people in the door and you'll get our sweet swag bag! So many free goodies - doors open at 11, line starts when you get there... we hope there won't be a blizzard for you to wait in this year!

KIDS AREA
Back by popular demand, the Des Moines Children's Museum will be on site to help keep little ones entertained. But it doesn't end there, we'll also have seed planting, kids yoga, bubbles, face painting, and more!

Keep an eye out for vendor/speaker/workshop announcements in the upcoming months! We can't wait to see you on April 27 from 11am-5pm!
