Posted on 01 October 2016 by Jason

Celebrating plant-based living, the 12th annual Portland VegFest is on October 22-23 this year at the Oregon Convention Center (OCC),  featuring food, food and more food! Try free samples of hundreds of different products. Watch live chef demonstrations and get even more samples. To top it off, meals will be available from local restaurants.

To work off all that food, check out the fitness stage and classes, featuring yoga, nia and other activities. Fashion and beauty exhibitors will surround the fashion/beauty stage, and a variety of T-shirts will also be available from many nonprofits scattered throughout the exhibit hall.

A free photo booth for all ages is located at the far wall, as is the children’s activities area, featuring stories, face painting and more.

Prominent speakers this year include Dr. Neal Barnard, founder of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and Michele Simon, founder of the Plant-Based Foods Association. There will also be films and a bookstore at the event.

Everyone is welcome! Location: OCC, 777 NE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd., Portland. For more information, cost and times, visit
