What’s Happening

The 7th annual NH VegFest at Manchester Community College will be on April 20, 2019 from 9:00am to 3:00pm.

NH VegFest is a festival to celebrate veganism in New Hampshire. Admission is free and there is plenty of free parking. Come spend the day:

  • Shopping with our fantastic vendors

  • Enjoying vegan lunch and desserts (free samples, too!)

  • Learning from our speakers (see schedule below)

  • Talking with advocacy groups

  • Attending a drum circle

Go super-eco-friendly and bring: a reusable shopping bag, plate, cloth napkin, and utensils.

Feel free to bring your old vegan cookbooks to add to a 'share and take' table.

NH VegFest is run entirely by volunteers. If you'd like to get involved, contact Kathy DesRoches at 603-553-1349 or kathyvegan@gmail.com.
