Did you know? NoHo has the largest street fair with a vegan focus. This year the Vegan Street Fair will feature more vendors than ever before!
Vegan Street Fair, the food event with free admission, returns again to North Hollywood in Los Angeles, Sunday, March 26, 2017, on Chandler Blvd. between Tujunga and Vineland.
Patrons can get delicious bite-sized and full-portioned plant-based eats as well as apparel curated from near and far. The event features vegan and vegan-friendly vendors from Los Angeles, Orange County, the Bay area and as far as Portland, Oregon and New York, New York. This year, the event will include 150 vendors - more than ever before.
“We’re bringing the best vegan eats and products to Los Angeles locals so they can experience vegan culture, food and fun all in one place,” said Jessica Schoech founder of Vegan Street Fair.
The event presents a variety of vendors from food to merchandise, accessories and more. Some of the returning vendors include Donut Friend, World Empanadas and Taqueria La Venganza. New for this year, Vegan Street Fair will feature Trejo’s Tacos, by CHLOE, Word of Mouth Truck and more. Another new addition will be a beer garden in partnership with The Federal Bar after great success at Vegan Street Fair Nights in September of 2016. Get ready to sample a bunch of tasty beers like Saint Archer Pale Ale, Saint Archer White, Sierra Tropical IPA, Sierra German IPA, Firestone Walker Union Jack, Firestone Walker 805, Boomtown Ingenue and Crispin Blackberry Cider.
Vegan Street Fair’s inaugural year in 2015 hosted 44 vendors with around 10,000 attendees. In 2016, Vegan Street Fair boasted 100 vendors and had 20,000 attendees. Also in 2016, Vegan Street Fair added Vegan Street Fair Nights in September- a two-day paid evening event that had 3,000 attendees over two days.
This year, Vegan Street Fair will have not only Vegan Street Fair Los Angeles and Vegan Street Fair Nights in the line-up, but will also be bringing the popular event to the East Coast for Vegan Street Fair New York on June 10, 2017.
Schoech, who is from New York originally, was inspired to create the event based on street fairs that are popular in the city. Since Los Angeles is so vegan-friendly, the average person may never be able to try all the delicious vegan offerings - so Vegan Street Fair brings them to the people.
