How much does it cost?

SLC VegFest is FREE to attend! But it costs us more than $20,000 to put on every year, and as a small non-profit we rely on the generosity of our members and sponsors. If you are interested in helping the festival, please become a friend of the fest!

How do I get there?

SLC VegFest is committed to sustainability, and we highly recommend public transit or biking to the event. There is a TRAX stop right at the library on the University line and there will be a bike valet courtesy of the SLC Bicycle Collective to keep your bike stored securely. If you drive, we encourage carpooling. We cannot provide any parking space, but you can look for street parking or pay lots in the area. If you plan to drink alcohol at the festival, please plan ahead to get home safely.

Why should I come if I’m not vegan?

SLC VegFest is a unique, free event to learn how easy it is to eat vegan. There will be vegan food to sample, engaging speakers, exciting performers, and members from the local vegan community to answer questions and show off their talents.

Can I bring my dog?

While dogs are allowed in all outdoor areas of Library Square, please note that with the loud sounds, crowds, and potentially hot weather, the festival is likely to be an uncomfortable place for dogs.

Please remember to never leave your dog in the car. Any dogs left in cars will be reported to Salt Lake County Animal Services immediately.

Is the event kid-friendly?

Without a doubt! We will have several fun and educational opportunities for children of all ages in our kid’s zone.

Do you have ADA accommodations?

Yes. There is ADA reserved parking spaces in the library parking garage (must pay lot fee), and we will have a passenger loading zone on 500 South. All areas of the festival are accessible, and the auditorium has accessible seating and companion seating. There will also be ASL interpreters available at the event. For an ADA accommodation, contact Amy at 385-275-8341.
