This May was the 6th annual Vegan Beer and Food Festival. This is my favorite yearly vegan event. This was our third year attending and definitely my favorite so far. The festival was previously held across the street from The Roxy but was moved to the Rose Bowl this year. I must say it was awesome to see the giant beer best banners hanging from such a recognizable venue. Attendee tweets and Instagram pics were also being displayed on a giant screen in inside the stadium which was as nice touch. The added space made it much easier to walk around and it seems like there were more vendors this time around. Another perk of the new venue was space for VIP lounge with private bathrooms and a VIP area on the lawn.
Although I missed some of my favs not in attendance this year (such as Guru Tacos), the lineup of food and beer was even better than our first two years. Check out a few of our pics below including pretzels from Sage Vegan, tacos and cauliflower ceviche from Plant Food for the People, chicken and waffle grill cheese from the Grilled Cheese Truck and Mac and Yeeze from I Eat Grass/The Lusty Vegan. Can’t wait for next year.
