How much does it cost?

SLC VegFest is FREE to attend! But it costs us more than $30,000 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 donate to UARC.

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 the library has a secure bike rack that uses your library card to keep your bike stored securely. There is also a Green Bike station right inside the festival on 200 East and 450 South. 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. Drop-off for Lyft and other services is on the corner of 200 East and 500 South. 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 and purchase, live music, activities and games for kids, and members from the local vegan community to answer questions at the UARC booth. We’ll also have plenty of information and organizations that can help you learn how to get involved to help animals in and around your local community.

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.

What should I bring to the festival?

Priority 1: an empty stomach! Priority 2: water bottle (free water refill stations around the plaza), sun protection, money. Bonus points: your own reusable container for food, and friends!

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, including face painting, bounce houses, coloring, and a planting activity.

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 the corner of 500 South and 200 East. All areas of the festival are accessible, and the auditorium has accessible seating and companion seating. For an ADA accommodation, please contact 385-401-4301.
