This year we are gathering as a community under the theme of “Heal NYC”. We are forever grateful to the brave men and women that have kept us healthy and safe, especially over the last two years. As a token of our appreciation, we have donated tickets to Veteran Tickets Foundation and First Tickets Foundation for eligible veterans, active-duty military personnel, first responders and their families. If you qualify, please visit Veteran Tickets Foundation or First Tickets Foundation to check availability. (You must use an existing or create an account to request tickets).





















All profits from the U.S. Veg Corp raffle will be donated to Plant Powered Metro New York. 100% of donations collected from the Donation option on festival tickets will go to Plant Powered Metro NY so don’t forget to add your support before you check out!

We are pleased to announce that this year’s festival non-profit beneficiary is Plant Powered Metro New York. This wonderful organization empowers people to find better health and overcome chronic disease through whole food, plant-based nutrition. They offer evidence-based education, resources, and support to create community and inspire change throughout the New York metropolitan area. Join us in supporting the great work PPMNY does to get NYC healthy!










The health and safety of our festival community is our priority. All local and state mandated COVID-19 protocols will be adhered to. Per the latest health and safety mandates from the State of New York and New York City made on March 7, 2022, NYC has discontinued the Key to NYC vaccination requirement. Masks are strongly suggested but not mandatory at the event. To additionally ensure the safety of our participants, we are implementing additional cleaning measures at the venue, have changed the layout to give vendors and patrons more space to interact, limited the number of vendors, and will operate well under venue capacity at all times. These COVID-19 protocols are subject to change at any moment due to state and city regulations.






A haven for foodies with a plant-based bent, the festival is a place where like-minded folks can recognize and celebrate vegetarian and vegan culinary innovations.

A carnival of vegan chefs, bakers and thousands of foodies.

Big thanks for having us part of vegfest.  You deserve a round of applause.  You ... make this look easy, with the finesse you pull off this event with.

Thanks again for having us out this past weekend! It was a great event and we love sharing our special brand of soul-food with new people. We definitely want to come back next year!

I just wanted to take a moment to let everyone know that [the organizers] did an amazing job. This was our first time being involved and I was really impressed. I thought the show was well done, and all the guests I talked to had an amazing time. I was so happy to be a part of this event, and I look forward to next year’s!

Events like these make me even more happy than usual to be a vegan. It’s so great to be surrounded by so many like-minded people, and also eat until I nearly fall over.
