Annual Texas Veggie Fair Organizers Announce Record-Breaking Attendance Numbers, 2014 Date and Call for Partners
Vendors Invited to Enjoy Early-Bird Rates through March 1
It is official. In spite of sprouting up in the middle of cattle country, Texas Veggie Fair (TVF) has taken root in Dallas with more than 7,000 flocking to last fall's event and hundreds of thousands interacting online. Riding the wave, organizers for TVF2014 have announced the fifth annual event will be Sunday, October 19, 2014 from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. at Dallas' Reverchon Park.
With planning well underway for the 2014 event, organizers have announced an early-bird vendor discount of 20 percent off (2013 rates) until March 1. Those interested in sponsorship, food and product vending, exhibiting, or raffle/goodie bag giveaway items can visit the site and fill out a partner inquiry here.
Centered on plant-based cuisine, healthy green living, and animal welfare, Texas Veggie Fair features a full performance schedule, more than 100 vegan food and product vendors, a local beer garden, chef demos, a "Veggie Village" kids' and arts area, and speakers from across the country including the popular raw vegan personality Fully Raw Kristina and Joshua Katcher, fashion game changer and editor of The Discerning Brute. Last year's keynote speaker and performer was Erykah Badu. This is the third year the family and dog-friendly event will be at Reverchon Park and plans for enhanced parking options are underway.
Texas Veggie Fair is projected to grow exponentially along with the region's booming population of those interested in plant-based lifestyle options.
According to event founder and DallasVegan.com blogger James Scott, expect an even larger TVF2014. "Texas Veggie Fair has quadrupled in size since the first one in 2010 - we get bigger crowds each year. Through DallasVegan.com and other events I host throughout the year, I see first-hand the groundswell of people and businesses in DFW and surrounding areas interested in a plant-based diet. For one day each October, Texas Veggie Fair brings everyone together - the attendees, sponsors, vendors, and speakers - to learn, to eat, and to celebrate the vegan lifestyle.”
