Pensacola VegFest Is Free and Family Friendly




The second annual Pensacola VegFest, a vegan food and music festival, will take place from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., March 30, at Community Maritime Park. Organizers say the free, family-friendly event was created to normalize veganism, educate the curious and promote cruelty-free eating. It will feature activities for all ages, live music, specialty foods and many internationally known speakers, including doctors, environmentalists and animal rights activists. 

At vendor booths, festivalgoers can buy or learn about a variety of things, from cruelty-free food, clothing and jewelry, to animal sanctuaries and nonprofits, to natural soaps and locally made candles. The food section will feature American, Indian, Brazilian, Ethiopian and traditional festival fare. A welcome booth at the festival entrance will offer educational flyers, food and entertainment coupons, free food samples and grab bags, and a raffle entry. Every person who signs in with an email address will receive one free raffle ticket; extra raffle tickets will be available for purchase at $1 per ticket. Items will be raffled off throughout the day.

A children’s area will host activities such as face painting and coloring tables, and children are also welcome to enjoy the playground at Community Maritime Park. There will also be free scheduled activities throughout the day, such as a Blessing of the Planet Meditation and Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Yoga.
