Veg Fest is the largest festival in SWFL dedicated to celebrating and educating people about living a healthy, compassionate, sustainable, plant-based lifestyle that is healthier for people, animals and the planet!

NEW FOR 2020! If you participate as a vendor in at least one of the Cape Coral, Fort Myers or Naples Regional Fests, you will get a $50 refund the day after SWFL Veg Fest for all Food + Products or Services vendors!

In 2017, the first SWFL Veg Fest was held.  Between 8-10,000 committed and passionate enthusiasts of plant-based eating, healthy and compassionate lifestyles, environmentalists, and many others who wanted to learn more about how to protect their health, the planet, and its inhabitants attended. In 2018, Veg Fest drew almost twicethat number – between 16-20,000 from across SWFL and beyond!  

We intend to make SWFL Veg Fest 2020 a destination event, doubling our attendance once again!

The event will be promoted in the most effective online and local media channels we know of to ensure Veg Fest 2020 is the largest gathering to-date! As a vendor, we hope you will help by promoting this event to everyone in your tribe, and in all the media channels available to you.  And if there are other would-be vendors in your community, invite them to join you!

Consider this your personal invitation to be a vendor at SWFL Veg Fest 2020 and help make it the largest vegan festival in all of Southwest Florida!

SWFL Veg Fest 2020 will host vegan food trucks and vendors, healthy living and eco-friendly exhibitors and vendors, non-profits, fun and games for kids, cooking demonstrations, live music and entertainment, speakers who will share the latest information on living healthy, compassionate and sustainable lifestyles, and so much more!

Showcase your vegan business, products and/or services to thousands of people who follow, or are interested in learning more about, a sustainable, compassionate, plant-based lifestyle. Your business doesn’t have to be exclusively vegan, but what you bring to the Fest must be!

To participate as a vendor, you must fill out a vendor application form, explain what type of business you are, and what type of vegan products and/or services you will be showcasing to ensure a great reception by our attendees.  You will find a link to the vendor application form below.

At Veg Fest, we seek to draw different types of vendors with different types of spaces at different price points. Below is a list of possibilities. All booths are 10’X10′ unless noted otherwise. If you don’t see an option that suits your business or organization, please contact us at aPlantBasedDiet.org@gmail.com to inquire about special accommodations.
