Spokane VegFest is Saturday July 22nd at Spokane Community College, 1810 N Greene St, Spokane WA. The event goes from 10am – 6pm. Spokane VegFest is free and open to the public. Event parking is also free.

Spokane VegFest was established in 2014 as a way to bring awareness about healthy choices to the community. The event has grown larger each year, creating a deeper impact and reaching more people. The event is and always has been free to the public, and is a fantastic way to spend a summer Saturday. The importance of a plant-based diet to our health and our changing world is a valuable lesson for all ages.
