The 7th Annual Tampa Bay Veg Fest, the Tampa Bay area’s only vegan festival, will make its return Saturday, November 12, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Tampa Bay has been named 1 of only 10 must-attend veg fests in the entire country!

Veg Fest will take place at Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park, in a beautiful setting on the Hillsborough River in downtown Tampa. The park is conveniently located across the street and to the south of the Amalie Arena. Parking is available in the adjacent South Regional Parking Garage, located at 301 Channelside Drive.

Over 4,000 people attended last year’s event, and this year’s festival promises to be bigger and better.

The event — presented by Florida Voices for Animals— will appeal to all who enjoy tasty, healthy foods, whether or not they follow a vegetarian or vegan diet. The food booths drew rave reviews last year, and local vendors are expected to again impress attendees.
