SoCal VegFest Vendor Information

The 5th Annual SoCal Vegfest is set to take place on Saturday and Sunday, October 19-20, 2019 at OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, Orange County, California. We envisioned it to be an opportunity for all community members in Southern California to learn about vegan lifestyle, cooking, nutrition, to indulge in vegan food, and experience the welcoming vegan community in Southern California.

Last year, SoCal Vegfest was a resounding success!

This year, with your support, we want SoCal VegFest to be an even bigger, better, and more successful event! We are expecting up to 25,000 attendees this year, both vegan and non-vegan. We have a bigger venue, better stages, and great activities, speakers, and vendors lined up. Please take a look at the vendor opportunities below, and see which level of support will provide your business the most benefit.
