One of Pittsburgh’s most popular (and environmentally-friendly!) events has made a big announcement: This year, they’ll be moving the festival online.
On Saturday, September 26 and Sunday, September 27, Pittsburgh VegFest and Justice for Animals will be hosting a “VegFest Treasure Hunt” at various locations in and around the city.
All over Pittsburgh, you’ll find small, socially-distanced pop-ups, along with a number of online and virtual discounts at VegFest vendors and organizations, offering vegetarian and vegan-friendly dishes, and environmentally-conscious products.
As in years past, there will be elements of music, shopping, speakers, food, yoga, and family-friendly entertainment for Pittsburghers of all ages.
The festival, which is typically held outdoors at Allegheny Commons Park East, had to be re-imagined because of the coronavirus pandemic.
In the past, VegFest has been a great platform for vegan food businesses to test recipes, and gain a local following. Popular vegan ice cream business Sugar Spell Scoops debuted at VegFest 2016, and B52 Cafe tested recipes at the original VegFest before opening their Lawrenceville restaurant.
