The Atlanta Veg Fest will take place on Saturday, November 7, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Easley Conference Pavilion on the Atlanta Metropolitan State College campus. There will be speakers, roundtable discussions, kids activities and a marketplace of vegan-friendly vendors.

Doors open at 10 a.m. The first 300 guests will receive goodie bags filled with coupons and free samples from some of our generous sponsors.

We are asking for a $5 donation per adult at the door, but you won’t be turned away if you are unable to pay. The donations will help pay for the expenses of an event this size and will ensure we can continue to bring you the very best speakers and entertainment the vegan community has to offer.

We hope to see you there!
