NJ VEG FEST: Atlantic City Vegan Food Festival
Live in/near the garden state and looking to explore new eats? Check out the NJ Veg festival! The two day event features speakers, races, and of course, tons of vegan food. This event has been in place for a few years, and is a subset of the NJVEG fest that hosts numerous vegan affairs in the tri-state area.
The event happens in Atlantic City from July 13-14 on a boardwalk. On Friday the 13th (spo00o00o00ooky), there will be vegan food trucks from noon to 8 p.m. The morning of the 14th will consist of 3 runs: 10k, 5k, and a kids runs, followed by 4 speakers (RZA as keynote!) and a full-fledged vegan food fest in the evening.
They haven't released their list of vendors yet, but we are hoping to see some vegan takes on Italian dishes, Jersey classics such as the bacon/egg/cheese, and of course, Jersey pizza.
We love vegan food fairs because they show the diversity of vegan cuisine! We hope to visit one soon; this post will be updated if we make it to the fair!
