VegNews named Indianapolis one of the least vegan friendly cities in the United States last month. However, a non-profit organization of volunteers in Indianapolis is working to showcase plant-based food and business in Indiana by hosting the largest annual vegan event in the state. On April 29, 2017, from noon to 7 p.m., foodies will converge to chow down on vegan food and learn about plant-based lifestyles at the Pan Am Pavilion in downtown Indianapolis. Free and open to the public, Indy VegFest will include over 60 food vendors and exhibitors ranging from restaurants to clothing merchants to the Humane Society of the United States. Speakers, cooking demonstrations, fitness classes, kids’ activities and vegan food samples will fill up the day. The largest event of its type in Indiana, Indy VegFest is not just for vegans and vegetarians. Highlighting the health, environmental and compassionate aspects of a vegan lifestyle, Indy VegFest aspires to reach out to omnivores.
