Join us for a great weekend to celebrate “Good Food and Healthy Living!”
After taking a year off, Veggie Fest Chicago comes back to a new larger location to accommodate its growing popularity. This year’s Veggie Fest Chicago will be held on August 10 – 11 at Danada South Park at Navistar Circle in the western suburbs of Lisle and just of I-88 at Naperville Road in Naperville for easy access to the rest of Chicagoland. 11:00 am to 8:00 pm.
Now in its 13th year, Veggie Fest Chicago is one of the largest and most celebrated vegetarian food and wellness festivals in North America. In 2017, over 45,000 people attended the two-day festival.
Veggie Fest Chicago is going to wow your taste buds this summer with its famous vegetarian and vegan international food court. Fan of authentic ethnic food? You’ll appreciate the variety of vegetarian entrees from the booths offering Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and Mexican foods along with plenty of goodies your kids will love, including pizza and ice cream.
Bring your lawn chair and picnic blankets and enjoy live music from some of Chicago’s best bands – Reggie, Rock, Latin, Motown and more. There’s plenty of fun for kids in the children’s tent with face painting, clowns, and crafts, and over 100 vendor booths to explore. And engaging food demos by restaurant owners, chefs, and authors.
Not a vegetarian? It doesn’t matter. Come learn from leading experts and explore how to live a more healthy life from professionals speaking about diet, lifestyle, and environmental issues. Among our special guest speakers are.
