Pittsburgh VegFest is in its 7th Year and truly bigger than ever. The X is going to be there all this weekend to eat all the food, rock out to all the bands, and buy up all the animal friendly goodies.
Pittsburgh VegFest | Allegheny Commons EAST on the North Side | 11a - 5pm | Free!
If you’ve never been, you’re truly not going to make a bad stop in this extensive list of vendors. I do have some FAVORITES that I have to share.
Full disclosure these are friends of mine, but I’ve been partaking in their incredible cooking since it was just a pop up. Although I can’t say, “just” a pop up. The food here is extraordinary from The Trooper Dawg to my absolute favorite dish “Fistful of Curry,” and I’d never hesitate to take a non-vegan friend there to try it out. Hail Seitan. Kale ‘Em All.
Amazing and inventive vegan options. They even made a seitan roast I bought for thanksgiving that was like an actual hug of comfort food.
You can actually see this pop up in Pittsburgh quite a bit but take your favorite desserts, put ‘em in a jar, put ‘em in ya mouth. Although my full intention is to go for the regular 'ole cupcakes this weekend.
Sugar Spell Scoops
Sweets for the vegans with magical flavors and you best be on ya game and follow them on instagram because flavors sell out if you don’t hustle!
I mean, this list is extensive. Look at all of these vendors:
