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 9:00 p.m. in Santa Clarita’s Central Park, located at 27150 Bouquet Canyon Road.
The VegFest will be 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.
