Record Breaking Attendance at Toronto Veg Food Fest
the 32nd Toronto Veg Food Fest celebrated another successful year as the biggest vegan food fair in North America. From September 9-11, thousands of foodies came together at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto to savour the very best in plant-based fare.
Tasty dishes from over 140 local vendors, restaurants and bakeries, plus free workshops, live music programmed by Toronto Downtown Jazz, cooking demonstrations, and a ton of veg-friendly products— the Fest truly offered something for everyone.
“We feel the event was a huge success,” says Alyssa de Hoop, Special Events Coordinator at Veg Food Fest. “Our goal is to offer our guests an unparalleled opportunity to sample the very best from the vegan world and so far, we’ve had tremendous positive feedback.”
Guests gathered to celebrate explosive innovation in today’s vegan industry, and learn from the pros in vegan cooking, animal rights, health and nutrition, and more. They got to learn tips and tricks from the culinary masters at various cooking demonstrations, as top vegan chefs and home cooks created their own versions of traditional vegan foods.
If you missed this year’s Fest, worry not as the Toronto Vegetarian Association has already begun planning for the 33rd Veg Food Fest.
“A visit to Veg Food Fest will surely excite the palate of anyone that attends, as it is the perfect event for veg eaters and curious foodies alike,” adds Alyssa. “Although we don’t know the exact number of attendees, we believe that this year we received record breaking attendance of over 50,000.”
