10,000 Take Over Grant Park for Chicago Vegan Food & Drink Festival
On Saturday June 10th, ten thousand people helped prove that there’s success in promoting veganism, and tons of fun to be had doing it.
We’re still coming out of our food coma from a day of enjoying the incredible vegan feast that was on offer at the second annual Chicago Vegan Food & Drink Festival. Vendors lined the field, treating all in attendance to the best burgers, ice cream, beers, and more from across Chicago and beyond. Portland, LA, Milwaukee, Toronto, and even London, England were out to represent the reach and variety of epic vegan offerings across the globe.
Between bites, everyone took turns getting their Instagram worthy shots with our vegan art installations. Guests didn’t have to look far and wide to see our unapologetic brand of messaging, that never shies away from promoting the necessity of veganism. The world’s biggest vegan selfie also happened!
We had a section of games for the little vegans of the future, volleyball courts, henna tattoos, and perfect summer weather for sprawling out on Grant Park’s beautiful tree-lined grounds. But the DJs kept the crowd on their feet throughout the show, and contests made champions of those who could eat vegan hot dogs or chug down a vegan beer the fastest.
The show felt like an absolute dream, but we have the wonky tan lines to remind us it really happened. Do yourself a favour, and don’t miss out on the next two Vegan Food & Drink Festival dates this season.
We hit Toronto on August 19th and take over New York for the first time on October 1st. Early bird tickets are still available for both shows.
